Question about 2002 Ford Thunderbird
Replace every cooling system part: radiator, fan (if it has stopped blowing), upper/lower hoses, thermostat housing, down tube to the plenum, reservoir, water pump, and possibly the spider valve (not so sure the heater core will need to be replaced due to its location) as most of these are plastic components and once your system overheats, most of the structural integrity of all of these components will eventually fail in rather short order after the first overheating...it's the same system in the Lincoln LS and I have replaced all of these parts in mine, consecutively after one part is repaired, within weeks another component fails...I also inserted a flush fitting into the heater hose to force the air out of the system when bleeding, as Lincoln's advised process has been a constant fail for me...
