Lincoln LS Sport: I have a 2001 Lincoln LS V6. The other day

This answer was rated:

I have a 2001 Lincoln LS V6. The other day while driving (not on the highway) I noticed the temperature guage had went all the way up to H there was a beeping sound and so I turned the vehicle off and had it towed. The repair person has replaced the coolent resevoir and cleaned the radiator put the temperature gauge is still creeping up. Any insight on what could be wrong?
Hello! Welcome to justanswer!

How many miles are on your car? Has the water pump ever been replaced?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

120000 miles. Yes the water pump has been relaced before

Was the thermostat changed after it overheated?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

No the thermostat was not changed

When the thermostat is exposed to high heat levels, it tends to stick and not open all of the way. Id have it replaced and the system refilled.
