start by cheking your hoses,specially the bottom hose. feel it for any unusual bulges or if it feels funny replace it. if the hoses are ok make sure that the thermostat is not malfuntioning, and that is the same rating as your vehicle requires. finally have your system flushed.

Why is the Crown Victoria overheating?

Most common cause for overheating is low coolant, check and make sure your coolant is full when engine is cold. If coolant is full, the thermostat may be bad. Most thermostats open between 180 and 210 degrees if it gets higher than that and coolant is full I would replace the thermostat because it's a cheap repair, usually under $10 for the part. The thermostat is located in the housing of the engine where the upper radiator hose goes in. If overheating continues, you may have a bad water pump or plugged radiator.

How do you know if your thermostat is shot?

If the engine is overheating, the thermostat is stuck closed. If the heater is not putting out enough hot air the thermostat is stuck open. Change the thermostat as a normal part of maintenance when changing coolant.
