I suggest having the cooling system checked for trapped air not allowing proper coolant circulation; have it checked for a possible head gasket failure, this can sometimes be noted by observing a "perculating" in the radiator when the engine is running with the cap off. Steam coming from the tailpipe on a previously warmed engine or the apperance of "milky " looking oil on the dipstick.

2003 Lincoln town car engine cooling fan will not stop running?


In the diagram, pull that fuse, so it doesn't run the battery down. Of course when you drive the vehicle, plug the fuse back in. Any applicable trouble codes? In the diagram, you can see the cylinder head temp sensor. I can't guarantee the sensor is the problem, there could be other issues?

What is causing my 93 mark 8 to stall at idle


I had a problem with both the speedometer and odometer in a Lincoln. It may also have an effect on the engine operation. My speedometer showed 45mph standing still and miles were rolling up on the odometer.

For me, it was a bad Alternator. The alternator was shorting out through the case. You should have your alternator checked and if you find out it is good, then the problem is something that is charging the car body.

You are getting a stray current that is messing up your dash and engine controls. You may have a power wire which rubbed through its insulation.

I hav a 1998 Lincoln Mark 8, my AC works, but no heat. What is the problem?


Completely separated systems: the cool comes from an evaporator powered by the compressor, the heat from a radiator from the cooling fluid heated by the engine. If you don't have heat then either the radiator / heater or the controlling valve are clogged or respectively blocked shut. Try to clean them by running a radiator cleaning solution. If that fails the dash will have to be removed to access the heater to remove it and valve for a thorough cleaning and/or replacement.

Where is the 97 mark 8 fuel filter at


Go to your passenger side and the fuel rails can be seen right there near the edge of the car. Follow them down toward your tire and you will run right into the fuel filter.

Over-heating issue


2000 LS cooling system is a very tough system to diagnosis. Any kind of air in system will totally stop the flow and cause it to heat.That is the reason it has 2 places to bleed the air from the system.The one at the engine where the upper hose connects and one beside the brake booster near the degas bottle(rubber tube with a screw end).
The cooling fan is also hydraulic and has it's own power steering pump.
The good thing about this system is that it uses a cylinder head temp sensor that measures the metal temp and not engine coolant temp. When the PCM sees the CHT reach a certain temp it will start shutting down 4 cylinders at a time and use these cylinders as actual air pumps to help cool the engine down.If this does not work it will then shut the engine down totally until the temps come back down.

The most common problems we see are thermostats,crack degas bottle,or a leak somewhere,and of course air in the system. Have not seen a cracked head yet however did see one that pushed the plug out of the cooling port in the head but this also filled the oil with coolant.
Have also seen cooling fans that would not work until PCM demmanded high speed,caused by a weak power steering pump.

97 lincoln mark v111 cooling fan wont come on


Check the engine temperature sensor, and the cooling fan switch, they both control the fan operation. One or both are not working.
