2002 Lincoln ls overheats when stopped but is fine when on the highway but there is no heat or leaks

Asked by Aug 25, 2016 at 08:09 PM about the 2002 Lincoln LS V6 Premium

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The reservoir bubbles and sprays I can't tell from
where.  The oil is OK doesn't look like chocolate
milk so don't think it's the head gasket.  It just
doesn't make since.

Bubbles in the reservoir is not a good sign, a blown head gasket does not always blow next to an oil passage, have a block check performed at your favorite shop, that will tell the tale. Make sure the cooling system is full before starting it to prevent further engine damage. No heat tells me there is an air pocket in the system and that may also indicate a blown head gasket.

I get ice cold AC.... But when it bubbles I'm hearing a hissing sound.. When I'm on the highway it's fine. But not the temperature Guage will spike up I pull over shut it off and it's back to normal. If there is a air pocket how do I fix it.
