Re: lincoln ls transmition reverse
I would say that the fluid is just low and it takes longer to pick up the fluid in reverse. If fluid is checked on level ground and hot and is still indicating it is full, then I would check to see when the last transmissing service was done and when the servicing intervals are. You may need a new filter and fluid, relatively inexpensive compared to the alternative.

Confirm that there is no debris hung up in any of the linkage (any where). If the ignition key locks the tranny shifter, then this can be your focus -- something has come apart at the key barrel (inside column. (if not) Then check the linkage that the brake disengages to allow the tranny linkage to be moved. (if not that) Check the tranny linkage to ensure all pcs are still in place and have clips in place.
If its stuck in reverse then it wont start, this could be a bad tranny or the shift cable broke or came loose, theres a braket under the dash that holds the shift cable before it connects to the shifter linkage arm and that braket sometimes gets loosened up and the other problem is the shifter tube may have broken. a good way to see if its the tranny or the shifter asm is to get under the truck make sure to block wheels and put e-brake on. dissconnect linkage at the tranny and move the selecter arm on the tranny, if it in reverse then it should move o click in one direction which is park and the other way is into neutral then drive and so on, try to get it into park and seeif truck starts, if it does then its not the tranyy but rather it the shifter, another thing before doing that have someone turn key on but dont try to start it just move the shifter and se if it moves the arm on the trany, you will see this from under the side of truck on driverside. good day.
check the linkage from the tranny, is it an automatic tranny ?, make sure the shifter cable is moveing in and out when you shift gears, if it moves both ways you might have to adjust the linkage again as it could have slipped, hope this helps.
I believe you mean it is a manual tranny. I believe the shift fork in the tranny is messed up or the linkage from the shifter to tranny is diconnected. In order to check the linkage pull the car up on ramps and lock the rear brakes. Find the shifter under the car and follow the linkages to the tranny. The shift fork will have to be checked at the shop.
Take the cable or linkage off the tranny. Push the tranny arm into park. If it is a linkage then adjust your linkage to match to tranny arm. If it is a cable with it disconnected see if it moves when you move the gear shift, The cable should move freely. You can pull on the end of the cable to make sure it is not broken. Make sure that your tranny arm moves in all gears. Please chalk the wheels so you don't get hurt.
Your shift linkage at the tranny is probably out oif adjustment. Disconect the linkage at the tranny and with the e-brake on have someone inside the car to make sure that it doesn't run you over. Then take the shift lever on the tranny and move it through the different gears. If it still does it then at least you've narrowed it down to the tranny.
