It can if it's sucking air instead of coolant from the degas bottle (aka your reservoir) the cooling system is meant to be a closed system.

Yes and you do not want to run your Lincoln engine hot or it can blow head gaskets fast, so get a new or good used one.

might be the heads leaking...have a sniffer /smog put up to the water and see if its free of emissions..
