    Weird AC/Heat Problem

    Thank you!! As for the blockage or trapped air, wouldn't the flush and the shop bleeding it have fixed that? I will try the DCCV!

    Weird AC/Heat Problem

    Bumping an old thread. I still don't have heat. The tstat, water pump, and degas bottle, along with hoses were replaced (had an overheating issue). I just had the whole cooling system flushed because I was told that the heater core was clogged. It now blows warm/cool air, but cannot get warm...

    Weird AC/Heat Problem

    That is what I was thinking but the whole thing doesn't make sense. No heat, and the ac causes engine overheating and then I have heat and no overheating with the ac on. LOL Thank you!

    Weird AC/Heat Problem

    Ok, I'm back. I haven't really fooled with the a/c or had my mechanic look at it yet. I took the chance and turned my a/c on and drove it and it didn't overheat. I drove further and it still didn't overheat. Later, I turned the heat on and it blew hot air. Could the thermostat been stuck...

    Weird AC/Heat Problem

    Thanks!! I did see that the fan is indeed turning. I will make note of that and perhaps he can change that out first.

    Weird AC/Heat Problem

    Interesting. I may try that since we are having some 90+ degree days in MD right now. Between your help with the tie rod toe lateral link...(why can't they be called one thing!), and this...I have an idea of what I need to get now. Thank you again!

    Weird AC/Heat Problem

    Thank you. When I ran the car with the degas bottle cap off, shouldn't some of the fluid been sucked inside? The amount of fluid never changed. I was able to fix my central a/c unit at home, but couldn't find the fan in the car. Today is not my day!! lol Appreciate your help!

    Weird AC/Heat Problem

    I missed this reply. Thank you for that! I will start pricing them! To answer your question, no, I do not hear the boiling sound at normal temperature. Only when it overheats, and that has only happened when I ran the a/c.

    Weird AC/Heat Problem

    I did this. I didn't feel any airflow when I started the car and didn't notice a difference when I turned on the AC. That's puzzling because the shop told me the fan was working but I cannot see it spin or feel it. Thank you for your help!

    Weird AC/Heat Problem

    I found that the same time I noticed I could fit about 6 bodies in the trunk if need be :) LOL

    Weird AC/Heat Problem

    This I can do! The fluid is not milky, I checked it yesterday. I am going to try this at lunch time. I appreciate your help!

    Weird AC/Heat Problem

    Thank you for that. I found the relay diagram and was going to swap the ones relating to AC but now I will not. I based that on this (I am not sure if it does or not, but 2000 to 2002 Lincoln LS has a hydraulic pump driven fan, and there is a relay, under the hood in the fuse/relay box on the...

    Weird AC/Heat Problem

    It is an 02 V6. The coolant does boil with the cap on. I figured that was the fan, I just wasn't seeing it. The shop that did the basic diagnostics said that it was coming on, but they put their hand in the front of the car by the grill.

    Weird AC/Heat Problem

    No offense taken! I already know I am not qualified. It is an 02 V6. Yes, the engine overheats. If there are known things that can be done (fuses, relays...stuff like that) I can do I will. I can gather parts and things like that for when my mechanic comes back in to town. He is already...

    Replaced the TOE LINKS! Here's how!

    It is definitely the lateral link! I took a picture from under the car! Why one part has so many names is beyond me! Thanks!

    Weird AC/Heat Problem

    Hello :) When I first got the LS a few months ago the heat didn't work. At that time, I did the HVAC self test and received a code. I can't remember and didn't pay it much mind because I wasn't worried about the heat. Fast forward, I turned the A/C on and it works well...until it overheats...

    Replaced the TOE LINKS! Here's how!

    True. My mechanic is on vacation right now and I had diagnostics done to see what was the issue. If I have the parts ready for him when he returns, he can knock it out with no problem! I definitely won't me trying anything like this myself :)

    Replaced the TOE LINKS! Here's how!

    Thank you muches!! I have been going crazy. Literally. Is the service manual and the owners manual the same thing? I just downloaded the owners manual and started looking through it.

    Replaced the TOE LINKS! Here's how!

    Is the toe link the same as a tie rod? Was told I needed a rear tie rod, and can't find one. The dealer says it is called (their description) a Rear Link. I am so confuzzled!

    Wierd A/C/heat problem

    Hello...I have been searching for suggestions to why my 02 overheats when the A/C is on. I found several threads but most had other overheating issues also. This one was similar, though even driving on the highway doesn't help. I followed the instructions and ran the car with the cap off and...
