SOURCE: Transmission hesitates shifting into second and perhaps third gear when driving slow. When acceleration is positive transmission shifts smoothly. Reference "99 Mercury Transmission" as Subject when

Several things could be causing your problem:

  1. Auto transmission fluid is low
  2. Auto transmission fluid needs changing; this is an area that gets neglected by a lot of people;check the fluid and if its brown or gives off a burning smell, it needs changing. Very old transmission fluid will cause slipping in the transmission; if this is the case, it should be changed along with the filter
Hope you find that this answers your question. Best of luck.
Greg

p.s. If you have the fluid changed, make sure it's done from the tranmission pan, not through the filler tube; siphoning through the filler tube can be hazardous to the transmission, especially cars with a lot of miles

Hi:
This same thing happened to my daughter,s car, and it ended up being fixed with a transmission speed sensor. This sensor not only runs the speedometer, it helps tell the transmission when to shift too.

SOURCE: 2000 grand marquis gear shift

At the end of the steering column, under the dash is a steel bracket that the inner portion of the shift cable is attached to. There are two t30 torx bolts affixing this bracket to the shift tube in the steering column. These bolts commonly come loose. You will have to stand on your head under the dash, but tightening these two bolts will solve your problem.

I have a 1996 Mercury Gran Marquis sometimes wouldn't go into D-gear. forced me to go to 2 Gear. Few days ago when i put it on PARK gear, it goes into reverse. Do i need a new transmission?


Maybe, but not necessarily. Its possible your shift linkage/cable has loosened or stretched. Have a reputable transmission shop check that. (easy for them to do)

My PRNDL don't work, loose shift indicator won't go into gear. Plenty of transmission fluid, no obvious wear or breakage, what do I do now?


When you turn the key to the ON position are there any instrument lights on the dash? Does the radio work? If not, dead battery.

2003 Mercury Grand Marquis w/ less than 100k miles-lost reverse; all other gears fine.


Usually what causes this is your reverse clutch is worn out in the transmission, or there is a bad valve

Overdrive light is flashing on my 1996 Mercury Grand Marquis


That usually means the transmission is in "LIMP" mode... Just to get you home or to a Service Center of your choice (one that does transmissions).... When it O/D blinks the car will drive sluggish... it stays in second gear and does not shift.... just so you can LIMP somewhere...... a good price to rebuild this transmission is about 1500 dollars.... Good Luck

Tranny wont shift


Sounds like you need a rebuild on your transmission. The overdrive is going out in the transmission system.

Tranny trouble


Sounds like your idle controll sensor, it most commonly looks like a spark plug, it plugs in to the side of the transmission, near the belle housing. But for now try a quart of lucas oil in your transmission, if that causes it to shift, then your bands are stretched, and most likely need a transmission.
