I have a 2000 lincoln ls. It has been overheating. Mines blows cold air but doesnt blow hot air. I had the resevoir replaced. Im currently waiting on the radiator to be replaced. Can you tell me what that problem sounds like. I see everyone else has problems with getting cold air. Mine won't blow heat.

Hi Zeto I had the problem for a while Try new radiator cap and alot of those cars have a bad coolant reservoir I speny count hour and thousands of dollars at the lincoln dealer just find the problem my self by accident. I have done alot of research from other people who have had the same problem with the reservoir having a fine leak at the seam. Its located in front of the front windshield on driver side just open your hood.

I have had an over heating issue b4 on my 02 Lincoln ls. But talking on here I found a way to fix the issue. Change the hydraulic fan for an electric fan a 16 inch with 3000 air pullbut a 2700 air pull can work just as well. I been driving my car nonstop for a month and it hasn't overheated on me since. Im so happy now with my Lincoln. Just giving an update on my issue. Warning u may have to have an electrician rewire the fan so it works when u have the ac on. Cause I have to do it to mine but since summers over it can wait a while.

Yup. Not sure if it is a casting issue or a design issue, but they crack along the seam. I was lucky enough to find it on a blog before throwing money at the issue!

Damien there are alot of sensors on the fan does your check engine light come on . I want to go electric fan for performance reasons and lose the hydraulic pump for better of the line performance.

Nope my check engine light never came on. There really isn't any censors for"> the fan.

Did you notice any performance difference and did you remove your hydraulic pump. Damien where did you get the electric fan from?
Thanks for taking your time to post
