Engine Cooling problem
1998 Lincoln Continental V8 Front Wheel Drive Automatic 165000 miles

I have had my thermostat replaced twice, my radiator flushed and all my fans work properly and my car still overheats. But the catch is when its overheating I can put the vehicle in neutral and rev the rpms to 31/2 steadily and the temperature will go back down to norm for about 2-3 mins. Any ideas please I have tried everything!

Seems like you may have a weak water pumper, reving RPM up will help the coolant flow therefore cools engine back down.
