Overheating Due to Damaged Water Pump on Lincoln Town Car

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.

Fan doesn't come on. A/C doesn't get as cold as it should. engine will overheat from time to time...
the car does not over heat all the time. the radiator has been cleaned,new thermostat,new fan motor and blades.I have noticed that the fan only runs 3 seconds after turning the engine off.
The fans stop working and this cause the water pump to leak. still trying to get to water pump.

Runs hot, no power, has heat at times, pulley is loose,flywheel loose, spits and sputters
With the ac on, runs great on the hwy. Leave the hwy and drive around the city or idle. the car then overheats.

Over heating problem. I had the radiator flushed,new water pump.new thermostat,new fan and fan motor and new coolant container. none of these helped. A new water temp switch that that feeds water temp to the control module fixed the problem ( the switch cost $11.80 )
overheating, fixed thermastat, radiator, possible head gasket blown
