1998 Lincoln Continental Q&A
1998 Lincoln Continental Question: overheating
Engine overheated -- fans were not (either one) working .No repairs done on car in two years. Low mileage (48000). Excellent shape .Never had any problems before. Where should I start looking ? Where is temp. sensor located . Where is (if it has one ) fan relay located ? Where should I start ? Thanks for help !!! - JimmyB4

The fan relays on your Continental are located at the top center front of the engine compartment above the radiator. You really do need a diagnostic tool, however, to test the different components. A proper diagnostic tool can "active command" a fan to blow at high or low speeds. Then you can perform testing for power and ground and check the relays and the motors themselves. Good luck on this! - DaveJHM
