Lincoln Aviator Problems

Overheating Due to Damaged Water Pump on Lincoln Aviator

Problem Description and Possible Solution

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.

Car overheats and engine shuts down, have put new radiator, thermostat 2x water pump and still antifreeze will not circulate. Had this problem one year ago and turned out car had ran out of antifreeze in less than a month with no leak. This time car will not accept anymore antifreeze, the pressure builds up and the coolant bubbles over but will not circulate through engine
I had one coils go bad while traveling on I95 lincoln notified that these coils would go bad after these coils went bad I carried my vehicle to the dealership to be repaired at their expens soon after that my engine started running hot I had a new thermostat installed soon after that two more coils went bad driving at high speed on the interstate I carried it back to the dealership they repaired.the coils and told me I needed a cylinder head replaced I contacted the lincoln manufactory the told me it was my fought that my cylinder head went bad. Like i knew when these coils was going to go bad now my engine is running hot again my vehicle is parked in my driveway with 72,000 mile on it I don't want to drive it and create more damage to engine ! I brought this vehicle with 20 miles on it . I have no solution to problem.
I've had the vehicle repeatedly give me a warning to "check engine temperature" sometimes it appears the sensor is wrong and when I lift the hood the engine only feels a little warm. Other times it will give me this message and within moments all of my coolent will seem to boil out from the cap. In both situations the sensor will disable all functions of the vehicle if you attempt to drive it during the warning.
