Question about 1999 Lincoln Continental
I just stopped for gas and when i restarted on the highway, my transmission will not shift above 2nd gear either automatically in drive or when i shift up manually through the gate. the check transmission light is also on.
the fluid level checks out good and i have disconnected the battery for ten minutes to reset the cpu but it did not clear up the problem.
please advise asap. thanks
You have a shift solenoid sticking, it may start working again on it's own, but here is the 1st thing we do in the shop, if the trans has not been serviced (60,000) we do that, many times clean fluid and a new filter cure the issue, if that doesn't cure the problem the trans pan must be dropped and the solenoids and wiring connectors tested. My experience, 20 years as a Ford dealer technician.
