In this video I have a look at a 2005 Lincoln Town Car that was dropped off with a complaint of overheating. The lady told me it started running hot when she was pulling a long hill. After letting the car sit for a while she was able to drive it to my shop. Sounds like a fan issue to me. Let's find out. -Enjoy!

    Fenders clicking the guard rail post, the guy beside me was white as a ghost. Love that you know these obscure songs.

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mark Ash says:

    I'm guessing that you get negative comments about some of the non-standard, command decisions that you make. However, my humble opinion on that is, that's exactly why customers come to you, and keep coming back for life. They aren't just paying for your wrenching ability. They want, and need, your experience and common sense. Bravo, and thanks for another great video!

    Just remember you can’t see it from the street and we’re not taking it to the fair 😀

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars amy Thompson says:

    great job. thorough explanation!

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars NETWizzJbirk says:

    That repair is great. She was out $5 in connectors and $15 in coolant plus your time. Very fair. A dealer would have probably solder her a new fan assembly, new wiring harness, had the car for a week and charged $800

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Norm Pettett says:

    Is this the gas cap Lincoln with other electrical problems?

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jose Gerino says:

    You done real good you were able to get her back on the road and that is the main concern all drivers have good job

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kevin Nicks says:

    I appreciation your video

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ben Bowles says:

    Had something similar happen to my V8 Commodore. Fans had been accidentally disconnected. Pulled up immediately the temp gauge got hotter than normal, noticed fans weren’t on, let it cool, checked fuses etc. Gave it to my mechanic who reconnected fans.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John 1 says:

    That raccoon was a textbook case of suicide by Marie.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Elliot Bollard says:

    Anyone know what brand those crimping pliers are ?

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ronald Bergeron says:

    Checking AMP draw would of been a good ideal I think. Am I wrong?

    Wait… While doing the road test, I think I saw Otis and Aunt Bee.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ronald Smith says:

    Was that the hill you towed a truck down in the snow in another video?

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars EDDIE LEAL says:

    I had 76 Cadillac some time ago. Big boat/nice ride. Wish I would have kept it.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars the reptile guyz says:

    It's so people can recognize a coral snake from a king snake king snakes are not venomous yet coral snakes are and can kill you

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Merta says:

    My personal favorite is the Lincoln mark 3,love this big car comfortable and it will surprise you how much go, you calling it give it the beans.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hola! John Rodrigues says:

    Would have no problem with that fix on my car. It works it should last the life of the car unless the fan goes bad again. Even then replacement fan can be put in real easy. You didn't do anything weird wild you just fixed it. You don't need that harness connector you really get down to it. What you did is perfectly fine by my book.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hola! John Rodrigues says:

    Don't feel bad Marie, love nature movie too. Miss your shining smile and sense of style!

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hola! John Rodrigues says:

    She was sharp enough to turn it off. Too many would keep going if they noticed at all.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars getoffthephone says:

    love this chanell

    Ya'll dinna watch enough Attenborough there O. A stote is about the size of a mouse. If youse could imagine a mouse sized Thang killing a rabbit you will understand how fast its metabolism is and eats its weight in food every day and does not get fat but is frantic day and night rustling up food, did I say frantically, oh yes O.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars tom TKE says:

    i shuddered when you wrapped the connectors with tape WHILE THE ENGINE WAS RUNNING.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Freeman says:

    Stoats are native animal killers Miss Marie, same as Ferrets look cute and lovely, hence the young lady appeal and lovingness ,don't be fooled

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mitch van Kesteren says:

    That engine is so happy you took it for that run lol. Years of carbon build up just got burnt off

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Cragified says:

    Back when American motor companies actually made decent cars. Use to love GM, Ford, Dodge for various vehicles, owned them all. Now days with how much they try to avoid and coverup problems I wouldn't even think of buying one from the last decade. GM's "Allison" 10 speeds that explode after 20,000 miles and ford's bizarre idea of going with open deck blocks on something that's meant to be turbocharged. Ignition module fires, and Chrysler/Dodge of course is just a badge slapped on FIAT group platforms now.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars J.whiteye says:

    oh wow those town cars look way better inside interior than grand marquis… I wanna go for nice Lincoln town car next time buy car

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jim Vet says:

    good job boss.

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Shane Harrison says:

    Must be the who who dried up

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Shane Harrison says:

    Hey it works and did the trick

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Shane Harrison says:

    Wow so the ole lincoln has a leaky who who, at least it's not constipated

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Reece says:

    Just think, with a normal fan mounted on the snout of the water pump this would never be a worry. Which is why l converted my two 4.6 cars to a nice, constant spinning fan with junkyard shrouds from 1994 models.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Reece says:

    That original upper radiator hose needs to be replaced before it blows half way to Boston.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars AJ Baltoy says:

    No she hit that raccoon. That raccoon has no concept of suicide.

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mister Mr says:

    It's a coral snake (venomous) and the milk snake (non-venomous mimic).
