2000 Lincoln LS Sport V8 from North America
Good looking car, but has this one issue
My 2000 Lincoln LS V8 overheated some times, and if you let it cool off, it may be OK for a week or so. I took it to the dealer with the same issue about 5 years ago and thought it was a thermostat. They replaced it then and worked fine for 5 years.
This time I took it in, and told them I think it is the thermostat, and they said it appeared to work and they replaced the whole computer. Still overheated.
Then took to another dealer and they said the thermostat looked OK again, and they replaced all the fluid and ran more tests. Maybe clogged they said. Still overheated. I just took it then to the Midas shop and said "just replace the thermostat". They did and it has worked good since then. So maybe if you are having this same issue, try to change the thermostat (costs less than $100); it may help your situation.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
