Asked by Aug 04, 2016 at 02:18 PM about the 2002 Lincoln LS V8

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

my husband tried to red line my Lincoln in a angry moment, yes i know,
immature- Anyway 2 wks later my a/c went warm and the temp gage maxed
out on H- i pulled over and turned the car off and it spewed coolant and
steam- What are the possible damages and is what my husband did related to
this problem?

2 Answers


What he did was probably exacerbate a problem that was already there - a weak head gasket that blew, or water pump failure. You won't know for certain until you have it inspected.
