OVERHEATING

Lincoln Continental

1995 LINCOLN CONTINENTAL 105,000 MILES V8 REPLACED SERPENTINE BELT, RADIATOR, WATER PUMP, AND GASKETS AND CAR IS STILL OVERHEATING. IT HAD A LEAK AT FIRST AND WE PLUGGED THE LEAK NOW THE COOLANT DOESN'T LEAVE THE RESERVOIR. I WAS TOLD TO CHECK THE FANS, BUT BEFORE I PAY FOR THE SEVENTH TIME TO DO ANOTHER DIAGNOSTIC, WHAT COULD BE THE PROBLEM?

Hello, I wired the fans on the high speed straight to the battery and took a ride. At first the temperature stayed normal, so I gas it up a couple of times pretty good just to check if it's still going to stay normal and then it started to go up again but not as fast as it did before. And the temperature never quite made it to the red but it did go as high on normal as it could. So looks like there is a mechanical problem, do you think it might be a gasket seal? And what else do you think it could be? Thank you for your help, I will wait for your answer.

If you have replaced all you say, I would have it chemical tested for head gasket
