Might just be old, perform a flush.

Sorry, I don't email, ask here. When was the last time the fluid was changed? Ford used ATF as the standard fill, if your not the original owner, someone might have added regular power steering fluid, which is clear. Old fluid will get brown and and the addition of the other fluid might have made it milky.

Ok i understand your email concern. What let me to find the power steering fluid being milky is my original problem of an overheating issue I found out that the Lincoln LS has a hydraulic actuator fan that takes a fluid but after locating that Reservoir the fan fluid is full my car overheats intermittently some days it's fine some days it's not typically it overheats in traffic on hot days not exactly sure what the problem is sorry for the typos and the lack of punctuation I'm using talk to text

Unless you have a leak, the fan fluid should be full, like you found, That also uses ATF or Dex/Merc. AS far as your overheating issue, might be the clutch itself is the issue, to other issues, like the water pump or thermostat. How is the coolant and level? A low coolant level will make a car overheat.
