We have a 1997 Lincoln Town Car with 60,000 miles on it and we are having a problem with the transmission.
When the vehicle is cold the transmission will shift fine but if we drive it 5-10 miles and park few a few minutes and then drive again it will shift from 1st to 2nd with no problems but it will go from 2nd to neutral and then it will finally go to 3rd and then overdrive and be fine untill we park it agin or have to idle for short time.
It is like the heat build up under the hood or next to the transmission is causing a problem. Once we get air going through things it seams to be alright.
I have replace the fluid, filter, shift solenoid and the mlps and none of that has helped.
I have been told that the throttle position sensor, vehicle speed sensor or the 2-3 accumulator could be bad.
Does anyone have any ideas?
Would Mercon V help?
