Overheating Due to Damaged Water Pump on Lincoln Town Car

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.

Haven't found the problem car overheat but not leaking or on oil not coming out exhaust no water coming to return hose but water disappearing what is the problem don't have electric fans got me stuck someone please help
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.
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 )
