Question about 1999 Lincoln Continental

1 Answer

I just put in a new fan motor and I drained the radiator, after topping it off and bleeding the air out of the cooling system the car still runs hot, Ive done this before and have not had this problem, I'm thinking the thermostat is sticking open but not really sure. Thanks Eric

Yes that would be the next thing to check,here's a trick u can do to see if your thermostat is opening and closing properly is take out the thermostat use a old sauce pan fill it with water bring to a boil use a pair of tongs set it just in the water (not on the bottom of the pan), it should open when u put it in and when u remove it it should close

My 2004 3400 closed system ,runs hot in town unless heater is on. driving up a mountain pass it gets very hot.on a flat highway runs normal. new t state,resivior cap, both fans work no leaks or smell


Radiator fan motor or radiator fan thermostat defective/

Also there is a relay that operates the fan motor

In town not enough air passing through radiator allowing it to over temp.. With heater fan running acts like cooling fan keeping engine cool

Highway driving ample air passing through radiator without fan.

Hill climbing requires cooling fan/

Hope this helps?

Putting in the antifreeze


remove header tank cap undo drain plug at bottom of radiator and bleed screw at top of radiator once all coolant has drained retighten tthe drain plug pour the new coolant into the header tank waiting for the coolant to drain through system and watch for coolant to come out of the bleed screw , shut bleed screw top up the header tank to the max level replace cap.Now run engine ,dont drive just stay with revs at 1500 open bleed screw to let any trapped air out and wait for the cooling fan to cut in , allow engine to cool down and refill header tank if required and repeat the running/bleeding/fancutting in procedure until when engine has cooled the coolant is near the max mark on header tank

Just put a new radiator in and it ran hot a day later. Should i bleed the system and how?


If the cooling system has air in it, yes you have to bleed it. If there is no small fitting on top of the engine to allow air to escape, you have to run the engine with the radiator cap or filler tank cap loose until the thermostat opens, then add more coolant.
I wonder about air in the system if it did not run hot right after you installed the radiator. Is it possible you are leaking coolant somewhere, or burning it out the exhaust ?

Engine overheating i have replaced the radiator has plenty of water


replace thermostat.then bleed coolant system, this is how you do it.fill the cooling coolant system with 50 / 50 dexcool and water to raise boiling point,straight water will evaporate boil away cause engine to overheat catch fire thats why you need 50 / 50 mixture antifreeze and water.to bleed coolant system first fill coolant system until coolant stay at the full cold mark on the the coolant overflow jug,then you start engine allow it to idle,place the heater and ac control in any ac setting except max and the temperature control to the highest setting,run engine until lower hose to water pump is hot. with the engine hot run the engine speed up to 3000 rpm and allow it return to idle, repeat this 5 times. slowly open the bleed valve on the thermostat housing or look for bleed valve at the water pump heater hose.open bleed valve for 15 seconds to expel any trapped air.then top off the coolant as necessary,and when top radiator hose hot thermostat open up.keep adding cooling to overflow until coolant level stop at full cold mark dont over fill coolant.if engine seem like overheating while looking at cooling gauge turn off engine wait a while until cool off add more coolant until coolant level stay stable and dont drop any.when open radiator overflow cap use large rag over the radiator cap to keep from getting scald open radiator cap a little at a time but dont open radiator cap until engine cool down first.replace the radiator overflow cap, thermostat,and engine coolant temperature sensor and check the cooling fans fuses and relays see what happens.

Drained radiator added prestone Radiator flush refilled and started overheating, drained radiator replaced thermostat and now I get no heat from heater,Radiator water is hot


disconnect the heat hoses going into fire wall , put hose into one with pressure and flush as it sounds like it could be bloked in the heater core,the other thing that could be the problem be the hot ,cold switch as it restricts the flow to makes the heater hoter or colder , it might need tlc or replacing as it is manaul not elec

Engine gets hoat some time, no heat from heater. top hose seems hot to touch lower hose is cool. Drained radiator few weeks ago and problem began


Theres a strong possibility being you just changed the coolant a few weeks ago that theres air in the cooling system not allowing the coolant to cirrculate properly, look at your top radiator hose is theres a small bleed valve at the top of the thermostat housing when the upper hose attactes to? If so loosen the bleed valve and allow the cooling system to purge the air out of the system you can tell when the air is out of the system when a steady stream of coolant starts to flow out of the bleed valve, if theres no bleed valve take the top radiator hose off of the engine side and allow the cooling system to purge the air out through the top of the engine that way, but it definatly sounds like theres air in the system not allowing for the cooling system to cool properly...

Over heats after 10 minutes running. I have taken rad out and ran water through it, put it back in and when it is running the bottom hose collapses.


Is the cooling fan running? If so, drain the radiator with the heater control set to hot. Install a new thermostat, and fill the system with a 50/50 mix of antifreeze and distilled water. Bleed all air from the system by using bleeder screws if equipped, and by starting the engine with the radiator cap off radiator full. Watch for escaping air bubbles and keep the radiator full. When you see no more air escaping put the cap back on. If the fan is not running then that is your problem. Turn the A/C on and the fan should run continuously. If it does not the fan motor is more than likely bad. Check the fuse for the fan. If it is good, Apply 12 volts directly to the fan motor to check it. If it runs then replace the thermal relay.

Top hose hot and bottom hose cool...replaced radiator,condenser auxillary fan unit/resistor, replaced harness (spliced) from aux fan unit to temp sensor in the radiator...fan wont work and I dont think...


sounds like your water pump is air bound ( there is a air bubble in your cooling system,or your water pump isn't turning.Bleed the cooling system by jacking car upso the antifreeze fill area is the highest point and run the engineat 1500 rpms add water if it goes down that tell you that the water pump is pulling.Also see if you have a air bleed on the cooling system.Keep the rpms up until you can't add anymore water then put cap back on before returning the engine to normal idle speed.

Hello! Where is the thermostat located on the 1997 Honda Odyssey? thanks


Follow the lower radiator hose from the radiator up to the thermostat cover. Remove the electrical connector that is on the cover (to the radiator fan switch) and then remove the 2 bolts holding the cover to get to the thermostat.
How to install thermostate:
CAUTION Never open, service or drain the radiator or cooling system when hot; serious burns can occur from the steam and hot coolant. Also, when draining engine coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted to ethylene glycol antifreeze and could drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantities. Always drain coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or is several years old.
  1. Note the radio security code and station presets.
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  3. Drain the engine coolant into a sealable container.
  4. Remove the fasteners from the thermostat housing, then remove the thermostat.
To install:
See Figures 1, 2, 3 and 4
0900c152800b0b85.jpgFig. 1: A thermostat can be tested by placing it in a suitable container filled with water, and heating the water with a hot plate while monitoring the temperature with a thermometer 0900c152800b0b86.jpgFig. 2: The thermostat should open when the water reaches the correct temperature 0900c152800b0b87.jpgFig. 3: The coolant bleed screw is located near the thermostat housing on Odysseys with 4-cylinder engines 0900c152800b0b88.jpgFig. 4: Always install the thermostat with the small pin at the top. The rubber thermostat seal is installed around the thermostat
  1. Install the thermostat using a new seal. If the thermostat has a small bleed hole, make sure the bleed hole is on the top.
  2. Apply an anti-seize compound to the threads of the fasteners.
  3. Reassemble in the reverse order of disassembly.
  4. Set the heater to the full hot position. Set the heater to the full hot position.
  5. On Odyssey models with 4-cylinder engines, locate the coolant bleed valve near the thermostat housing and open the valve 1/2 turn.
  6. Top off the cooling system and overflow reservoir with a 50/50 mixture of a recommended antifreeze and water solution, and bleed the system to remove any air pockets as necessary. Simultaneously squeeze the upper and lower radiator hoses to help push any captured air pockets out of the system.
  7. Inspect all coolant hoses and fittings to make sure they are properly installed and if previously opened, close the bleed valve.
  8. Connect the negative battery cable.
  9. Install the radiator cap loosely and start the engine. Allow the engine to run until the cooling fan has cycled two times, then turn the engine OFF and top off the cooling system as necessary.
  10. Install the radiator cap and inspect for leaks.
  11. Enter the radio security code.
WARNING The manufacturer does not recommend using a coolant concentration of greater than 60% antifreeze. When mixing a 50/50 solution of antifreeze and water, using distilled water may help to keep the cooling system from building up mineral deposits and internal blockage.
