Lincoln Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi im kevin how quickly does engine get hot now ?
My recommendation if you have no external leaks just pressuring out the top would be to have a combustion gas test carried out to see if head gasket has breached allowing a small amount of fluid to be burnt
No no colour difference at all just pressure in system this is an easy and quick test at garage
Has thermostat been replaced ?
It sonds like youve covered most other bases and the most likely cause for overheat is the level dropping slightly allowing air into system .have combustion gas check carried out i suspect that a head gasket issue is the cause
No problem please rate my service and come back to me let me know how you get on
Yes this is an involved job as you have a v8 you have two cylinder heads this bascally means removing the top half on the engine
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news have test carried out and go from there .please remember to rate my service
