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....

I have a 2000 lincoln Ls V8 3.9.. The coolant boils, i relpaced the water pump as well as the thermostat. What causes the coolant to boil??


1st, test the water pump and make sure with the belt off, that it turns freely now that you've installed it. Sometimes the impeller is not pressed on completely, and these don't turn properly.

Maybe you did this but just incase:

Always freespin anything installed , IE: water pump, oil pumps, alternator, generators, camshafts, crankshafts, etc., before moving to the next step.

2nd. Verify the belt installation. With todays serpentine belts, a wrong turn may cause the pump to run backwards, but seem correct. There should be a specific diagram under the hood or on the fender.

3rd. If the Belt's OK, Pump's OK, and you have properly installed the new Thermostat. (I have seen them installed upside down and they won't work that way.) If you filled it properly, making sure it was 100% full, then you may be dealing with a blown headgasket, cracked head, or a cracked cylinder wall.

I hope this helps & good luck!

I have a lincoln ls 2000 and where i put the water in it boils really hot what can this mean


I'm thinking a possible stuck or partially stuck thermostat as the easiest and least expensive fix.
There could be an obstruction somewhere if its not the thermostat...maybe a back flush is in order as well.

Hope this helps...

My carkeeps overheating all the sensors were checked and they are okay. The fan pump is working fine and the thermostat and water pump are new. Water does not appear to circulate?


Hi, well most likely this is the water pump? This is the commonest thing if the water isn't circulating. The pump will have to be replaced.

I have a 2002 Lincoln LS. I've owned it for


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.. OMG how insane and they would not refund.. so they took car back in and said it was the water pump.. guess what the so called water pump is really a Hydraulic pump.. so they changed it, fan motor, and new radiator..
Now have all this new and one year exactly car is over heating again.... Solution Get rid of the LS or all us complain to lincoln and for this car is a LEMON....
