Do the pressure test like Mr. Tennisshoe said, also don't forget to pay close attention to the heater core.

I tested the system no gaskets are cracked and they keep saying their is no leaks so I'm lost at this point

close to resorvoir there is a bleed off screw on black line,check to see if that is tight,good luck

Same problem just from out its the Reservoir at the bottom it has a pinhole leak

I've replaced my Coolant Reservoir 3 times. Leaking again, they did a pressure test and it came from the reservoir tank. Something is causing it to keep overheating and cracking the reservoir tank. Never ends. 2002 Lincoln LS is the worst year they made them. I have a lot of money invested in this vehicle.


Sharon, has anyone ever checked for blown headgaskets?
