Possibly yes if the engine temp also shows cool and not at operating range. If engine temp is good then check the air mix door on the heater it may not be closing off the outside air completely.

It is under the power steering reservoir and can be removed by removing two bolts. It has three hoses going to it
Its inside the passenger side front fender. Remove the plastic cover. Replace as you would any other Lincoln filter.
Simple answer to a simple question---- A Lincoln dealer !
Not unless you try to change the whole front end of the car.
You have to replace it.
All models and years of the Mark Viii are v8's

Yes it will
hi man i am awsome
The thermostat is located in a housing separate from the engine. It is inline with the lower radiator hose between the radiator and engine on the driver's side.
Not too bad, raise the front of the car up, drain the radiator, have long extensions to reach the journal where the thermostat is and loosen and take off the nuts and separate the journal and remove the thermostat and replace with new one and put back together.
According to the various models Owner Guides : With engine oil filter change : 1997 Lincoln Continental ( 5.7 liters ) 1997 Lincoln Mark VIII ( 5.7 liters ) 1997 Lincoln Town Car ( 4.7 liters )
True, just the line pressure is lower!
Drivers side under the hood look to the right and down from the radiator and you will see a journal, where the hoses meet, in that journal is the thermostat
put it up on ramps or jack up the driver's side front wheel. the thermostat is found in a small assembly on the driver's side in front of the motor. it has three to four coolant hoses attached to it and three bolts to take it apart.
If you don't have a shop manual, your nearest Lincoln or Ford parts department.

Below the climate control and back of center console.
They didn't make 1997 Mark Vii's? Maybe your talking about a mark Viii? To add to this question.... The Mark VII and Mark VIII are equipped with different engines. Mark VII came with Ford 5.0 H.O. V8 and a 2.3l Turbo Diesel in the earlier models. Mark VIII came with the 4.6l V8
Drain the radiator, facing the engine look down on the right side and see the journal with 2 bolts and that is where the thermostat is. With a long extension remove the bolts and take out the thermostat and reverse the order to install.
This is easier than I thought it would be. Took about 20-30 mins. The housing itself is not attached to the block or any stationary object under the hood. It is actually held up and in place by the 4 hoses that attach to it. Remove the hose clamps and the hoses and the thermostat housing will just come out. Scott Fuller 1993 Lincoln Mark VIII owner
