The car is boiling water. It already has a new thermostat. The car has only 1 thermostat? Is there a temperature sensor? If there is one, where is it located?

1956 ford customline 292t,b.special;my heater will not operate & no hot air out of vents. 1956 ford customline [292 thunderbird special engine]


usually this is air trapped in the system. Try leaving the cap loose on cold start and run engine until upper hose gets hot (ie thermostat opens). That should burp air. Then keep system full as it cools down. so it uscks coolant back in as it cools. Then, tighten cap.

Hey, My 2004 Ford Thunderbird is overheating. its not the water pump or thermostat. What can it be?


Did you actually replace the thermostat? I own a 04 t-bird and ran into the same issue, thermostat checked out fine when the engine was warm, but was flakey on cold starts. I replaced the thermostat and the car was fine.

My 96 thunderbird gettin hot


is your fan clutch kicking in? It could be bad. crab the fan blade and try to move it back and forth. If it moves more than minimal you will need to replace your fan clutch.

94 t-bird, 4.6 L is overheating. temp spikes and then goes down then spikes again, has ran hot once. replaced fan and thermostat


Your radiator core may be corroded or built up inside with deposits. Try flushing the system and take a good look around the core with a flashlight in side the fan shroud.
