It's possible the cooling system has an "air bubble". Lincoln has a procedure to purge any trapped air within the system. This is usually needed when a componet is replaced and the system re-filled. If I recall, next the the left hood hinge, the radiator tank is there (where coolant is added) and to the center of the vehicle from that tank, there's a valve that's used to let the air out. Not sure extactly however this should steer you in the right direction if that is the issue.

I to have 2011 Lincoln Ls overheating, no mechanic including ford dealership has been able to diagnose the problem I have replaced the radiator and hydrolic fan after the dealer told me it was the fan, the said that my thermostat was fine and not sticking,there where a motor to the fan and water pump both working fine and the water pump also working. It overheats when the weather is really hot and i turn the air conditioning on, and also in stop and go driving in hot weather,last time i checked i can drive long distances on the frwy at a least about an hour without overheating not something that intentionally risk trying but the gauge will go up to H when it does run hot and will continue to go up until the indicator light comes on if i dont pull over and stop, will be making a trip back to the dealer if they cant diagnose the problem i will be writing Ford corporate office, I have been dealing with this since April If anyone have any other solutions PLEASE HELP
#10 of 22 Totally clueless on the overheating...

I am having a overheating issue as well. Heres the trip with mine, In the past 18 months my 02 v8 has had the hydraulic fan replaced, the pump replaced, thermostat changed last week, no airlock or any of that fun stuff. mechanic said theres no leaks (im not sure if he pulled the degas bottle to check for crack but am taking his word for it), the cap seems to be good- nice hissing sound if i try to remove it. have had the radiator flushed and filled by a mechanic. ac is blowing hot air (doubt that has anything to do with it... just adding to the complaint box). It has overheated on me four times in the past two weeks. It only seems to do it on my third consecutive time getting into the car, ex. drove 9 miles to autozone was in there 20 mins. drove 2miles to oriellys was in there 10 minutes, then drove back home with it starting to heat up. when the temp starts to rise i hear a whining sound like theres a supercharger on the car. The mechanic has had the car twice now and cant find anything wrong with the car. When the car is overheating the fan isnt coming on but if i let the car sit for a while everything is fine. Unlike other people I cant just shut the car off and re start it with the guage going back to normal. no check engine light comes on when this happens- so are there codes being stored? Any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks in advance.

Well since my last post I have determined that It does appear that I have a leak seems to be coming from the resovoir(would that be the same as the dagasse bottle)? I have been had that leak but the mechanic kept saying it was the sweat from the air conditioning, my air conditioner does still work exceptionally well,without overheating but only on the frwy. Well I haven't been running the air and still notice a leak so I will address that and see what happens, If still overheats will take back to the dealer which
is in the plan anyway. will post back to let my overheating buddies know the outcome wish my luck

Ok I have read the other messages, well here is my story, I drive a 2005 Lincoln LS and I took it in for a routine oil change and when I left my car started to over heat, when I checked there was no coolant in the reservoir , I put some in and it ran for a while and than the gage started to rise to H again, I took it back to where I had gotten my oil changed and was told that initially it was my water pump and than after another 45min wait I was told that it is my Coolant Outlet Connector, very expensive to replace, I was told that the Coolant Pipe assembly was cracked, can someone explain how this could happen on a routine oil Change

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.
