OVERHEATING

1988 Lincoln Town Car

Engine Cooling problem
1988 Lincoln Town Car V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic

My car will run itself hot, about half way up the tempurature gauge before it'll cool itself down. I also am constantly have coolant splashing out of the over flow tank. We have replaced the fan clutch, the thermostat, the radiator, and the radiator cap. What could be causing this? The oil on the dipstick looks like regular oil so I don't think its a blown head gasket.

Check and see if lower radiator hose is collapsing when hot and running
