The reservoir should have transmission fluid in it. Mercon. If you have antifreeze in there flush all of it out.

I googled it and it seems there is a seperate reservoir on the lincoln fan, I didn't think there was.

I just checked it out - 10 pounds of unnecessary crap in a 2 pound box. God Bless Automotive Engineers. I guess an electric fan was too simple of a design. Yeah, for some stupid reason, the fan is hydraulic.

I have a hydraulic fan in my 2001 Lincoln LS, and there is antifreeze in the hydraulic fan reservoir. How do I flush it all out?

I just put an electronic fan and removed the hydraulic and my AC is better and driving 4 hours straight in traffic was no problem
