#14 of 22 Lincoln LS Overheating!

If you are still having the overheating problems let me know. I managed to solve that problem on one of my clients Lincoln LS 3.9L V8.

Any help or short cuts would be appreciated.
My seemingly overheats once I stop an allow a few minutes rest and restart all goes back to normal. I say seemingly because it never smells hot but the gauge goes up and I get the "check engine temp message" then reducing engine power. once restarted gauge goes back to normal- fan no longer runs and all appears normal until the next episode it is a 3.9L V8

Could be an air bubble. When the steam hits the sensor it thinks its overheating. There is a specific bleed procedure - try googling it.

My 2000 LS is overheating and very little to no interior heat. Any ideas what it could be? Stuck thermostat? Please help!

Did anyone ever figure this out? I am having the same issues.(Temperature reading hot, then showing normal after turning off the engine for a couple of minutes. Also, running the heater will prevent this.) Any help would be greatly appreciated.

My guess is you have an air bubble which becomes superheated pressurized steam and when that hits the coolant temp sensor it spikes the temp. Restarting the car moves the bubble as does turning on the heater.

I bled the coolant system this weekend and so far that seems to have done the trick. Thanks akirby.
