Q: Overheats on 2006 Lincoln LS

Once or twice a month overheats real quickly, you can watch the gauge move to hot in about a minute or two. I turn off the car wait a few minutes then restart the car the temp returns to normal. It will run without overheating for a week or two then the same happens again.

Replace the thermostat and use a better grade, not the cheaper one, they are a better 1 time fix.

If the problem returns after replacing the thermostat, have the system tested for exhaust gasses in the coolant which if found would suggest that an air pocket is forming and delaying the thermostat from opening.
