Engine Cooling problem
2000 Lincoln Town Car V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 115000 miles
drive belt squeaking for few days then breaks. Drive 1 mile, car overheats, water starts leaking, tow car to dealer, fix belt. Dealer claims thermostat now sticks, wants $1,600 to replace stat & intake manifold. I say no drive home, let car idle 2 hours no overheating. Could this be scam, intermitate sticking that hasn't happened yet, or possible manifold issue.
