Question about Lincoln LS

1 Answer

I bought a 2000 lincoln ls about a month ago and after we bought it, it started having an over heating problem. Since then, we put new fan, new t-stat, new coils and valves, new radiator cap, new belts, and full tune up. We would fix something on the car, and a few days later it would start over heating again. When it overheats, actually, right before it overheats it make a noise from the antifreeze canister area. Then once it overheats it starts smoking(white) and make a hissing noise, followed by antifreeze dripping from the drivers side by the wheel. The engine light came on last week (P1299) and when we replaced the belt it came off. 2 days later, engine light on again. Also, I'm not sure if the ac has something to do with it. Is that possible? I really need any advice or help I can get. Thanks!

I believe you have a head gasket or cylinder head problem (cracked head or blown head gasket).. If it is the gasket, the intake and cylinder head must be removed and a new gasket installed.. If it is the head itself, in addition to what have just said, you will have to have the head repaired or get a reconditoned or new one. This is a major repair.

    two things you need to check for... check your oil dipstick and see if there is any white or milky substance on the dipstick..if there is, that is water.. the only way it can get there is through a cracked head or glown head gasket.. the other thing, check your water in your radiator and see if you can see any bits of shimmering oil flaoting on the top of the water... if so, same thing... however you have already mentioned two reasons to suspect the gasket and/or the head(s) and that is the white smoke which is oil leaking into an exhaust port which happens with a cracked head or blownhead gasket..and the other is the antifreeze dripping from the right side of the motor which also indicates a bad head gasket... sorry to be the bearer of bad news.. unfortunately the people you bought it from were probably aware of this..

Lincoln ls V8 2003 engine temperture in the middle ?


You shouldn't hear the fan too much while in the car. It won't start to run until certain conditions are meet. Try leaving the A/C Off or put it on Auto and hit the A/C buttom off. I don't know how hot, the ambient air temp is, where you are.
Your not talking HAVC Blower inside are you?

I have put my lincoln ls in shop 5 times almost once year for over heating.. first 3 times they replaced the fan motor and fan.. worked for few months and went out again in 2 years have had 3 fan motors. Finally over heated again and they said it was radiator.. so for 800.00 they put in new radiator and as wife was driving car home it overheated..

Lincoln ls overheating


Cheap try is new radiator cap. If it cant pressurize the system the boil temp lowers considerably. If put new cap on and still over heat could have bad head gasket or a blockage in radiator...Cap is common and 10.00 to fix....
