Customer Question
I have a 2004...

I have a 2004 Lincoln LS Sport. The head gasket was just replaced, new radiator, new overflow container, new thermostat, and thermostat housing. And bled the system correctly. Still overheating.

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

Yes. Yes, nothing found by mechanic.

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

Combination. Head gasket and bleeding done by mechanic. Radiator, recover and tstat replaced by me.

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

Our mechanic is at a loss as to why it is still overheating.
