Customer Question
Overheating. Replaced thermostat. Appears...

Overheating. Replaced thermostat. Appears fans are not kicking on at higher temps.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the coolant? Have you checked for a leak in the cooling system?

Yup. Coolant is fine. Boils out when it overheated.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Lincoln?

2002

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

Thermostat, burping the cooling system.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

The electric fans come on when the car is started. But fail to come on when the temp climbs

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
V8, electric fan. Haven't checked with the AC on.
Lincoln Mechanic: HDGene, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago

Ok so the fan works on low speed only, not high or it doesnt come on at all when it runs hot? Need to know if it works with the ac as well.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
