2000 Lincoln LS ProblemsOverheating Due to a Damaged Impeller
Erratic engine coolant temperature or intermittent overheating can be caused by corrosion inside the water pump. The impeller may spin on the water pump shaft or the impeller may corrode. Either condition reduces coolant circulation resulting in engine overheating.
Even though the manufacturer does not call for regular servicing, our technicians recommend servicing the power steering fluid regularly.
You may be able to prevent transmission problems by servicing the transmission and inspecting the fluid every 15,000 to 30,000 miles. If the fluid is dark or burned then the transmission fluid should be changed.
