The thermostat you installed was either bad or is installed upside down. Possibly a clogged heater core. Possibly the system needs bleeding.

AnswerCould be your control cable is broken. Not familiar with your particular model but look for a cable on or near the firewall near the heater core. You may be able to move it by hand and get the haet you need. AnswerRemove DEX coolant the manufacturer recommends. DEX clogs the heater core. Put regular coolant in it then drive, drive, drive. It will break loose. Mine took nearly 4 months to get the sludge out of the radiator even after flush. But it worked. Manufacturer will never comment about that DEX crap.

Your car a 95 Camry overheated you changed the temp switch and thermostat when you put antifreeze in it it was fine but then the next day the antifreeze tank was empty no visable leaks either?

If you didn't get it warm after the work and then refill the tank - the system was probably closed when you filled it. It's possible once the thermostat opened (or just as the coolant leaked past), the fill you gave was used as it filled the system past that point.

You have antifreeze leaking only when car is running It is dripping down underneath the passenger side next to trasmission It is pure coolant You changed thermostat?

I would check the hoses leading into your radiator, and also the overflow for antifreeze. If that is not the problem, it could be your heater core. Your heater core might be leaking, you might have a hose leaking

Is there special antifreeze such as extended life antifreeze that's needed in a 2000 Lincoln Town Car?

No. Just goto a shop have the coolant (antifreeze) changed every 2 years. Have it "REVERSE FLUSHED" and have the thermostat replaced at the same time (should only cost 80 bucks or so) A shop will know which stuff to put in. You will not be able to flush the system like a shop can. Its worth the money.
