DO NOT put oil in the radiator : The engine cooling system for the 2001 Lincoln LS came from the factory with a 50 / 50 mix of distilled water and GREEN color antifreeze ( meeting Ford specification ESE-M97B44-A ) * also , the hydraulic engine cooling fan fluid reservoir takes MERCON automatic transmission fluid

What is causing your 90 Corsica to overheat only when idling When driving along temp will drop but when stopped at a light the temp gauge rises again?
Defective cooling fan or thermal switch. (NEW ANSWER) First check and make sure you have enough coolant in the radiator....normally about two gallons...nothing less(when the radiator is empty).....if you check your coolant level and it is low....add coolant...not water!!!....if it still overheats when sitting, either your thermostat is not opening when at the set temperature....in which case you will have to replace the thermostat....or the cooling fan isn't comming on at the set temperature in…
Where is a cooling fan switch on a 2004 Chevrolet Impala Fans quit working but if you turn on the air conditioner the fans work so what else could it be?
The cooling fan light on your dash refers to the engine compartment cooling fan on the passenger's side of the vehicle, not the radiator cooling fan. In my experience with my '85 Mr2, that fan doesn't do a helluva lot, cuz mine only works if I unplug the temp sensor (sensor's dead and I don't wanna replace it) and I've never had a problem with overheating.
( one ) power steering pump , the power steering fluid reservoir is on the drivers side of the engine . There is a reservoir on the passenger side of the engine which is for the engine cooling fan hydraulic fluid . Both of the reservoirs take MERCON automatic transmission fluid according to the 2001 Lincoln LS Owner Guide
