Question about 2001 Lincoln LS

1 Answer

Transmission, automatic. 2001 Lincoln LS 6 cyl.

The car will only creep in forward or reverse but only with the engine reved to 3500 rpm. Checking the fluid seems to be futile since there has been no leaks, and rebuilding is too expensive for my pocket. So is there any other thing I can c heck as far as electrical goes which may be related to the transmission operation. Of course any other things you can think of would be more than welcome. Also forgot to mention that the vehicle will go into third gear in the select shift mode and drive. Thats how I got it home.

    2001 Lincoln LS V8 Auto, 84,000 miles. ON THE DISPLAY INSIDE THE CAR I GOT A "CHECK TRANSMISSION" WARNING. THIS WAS THE FIRST TIME I EVER SAW THIS. THE NEXT DAY I TOOK IT TO A LINCOLN DEALERSHIP AND HAD IT SERVICED. AFTER A 120.00 DIAGNOSTICS FEE I LEARNED THAT THE TRANSMISSION HAS FAILED. I WAS TOLD THE 4TH AND 5TH GEAR IS INOPERABLE AND THAT THERE WAS A LOT OF TRASH AND EVEN METAL INSIDE THE TRANSMISSION. I WAS ABLE TO DRIVE IT HOME IN 3RD. 84,000 MILES GIVE ME A BREAK!! I DON'T BELIEVE THIS SHOULD HAVE HAPPENED. THAT'S NOT ENOUGH MILES FOR A TRANS. TO GO OUT. AND ONLY ONE DAYS WARNING. THESE CARS COST WAY TO MUCH TO BE HAVING THIS KIND OF PROBLEM. MAKES ME NOT WANT TO PUT ANY MONEY INTO THEM. WHAT SHOULD I DO?

2000 lincoln ls will run high on rpms without kicking into gear...sometimes it will kick in while car is reving in the 2 or 3000 range and it will buck...other times i can be going 60 and it will fall out...


The first thing to check is the fluid level in the transmission. If quite low, look for red leakage on the floor where you park. Suggest you find a quality auto transmission shop to check this out before you require very expensive service. Good luck!

2002 lincoln wont go forward but goes in reverse


Start the engine and allow it to get to operating temperature.

Place the gear selector in Reverse, then slowly through all the forward gears, while holding the brake.

Replace the selector in Park, but leave the engine running.

Check the transmission fluid level.

If low, add fluid until level is correct, then repeat above procedure and check fluid level again to ensure that transmission is filled to proper level.

If level is correct, perform fluid/filter exchange. If problem persists, see qualified service technician for further diagnosis. Transmission damage will require overhaul to repair.

Check the vacum lines going to the distributor and transmission. If they are leaking it could be your problem.

Continuous "whine" @ 1500 RPM only; and jerks/2001 Lincoln LS


Run the car from the top of a hill and let it coast at your whining speed. Put it in Neutral, does the whine disappear?
If not its in the drivetrain (wheels, driveshafts, tranny)
Very unlikely to be the timing belt. If it appears at a fixed speed then its drivetrain, if it whines at fixed revs its the engine.
Most likey the transmission I fear....Tires will also make loud whining noise too though...

Lincoln ls transimission fluid


It is located on the transmission pan. Their is a "fluid level check screw" that you will need to take out. You aren't going to be able to just dump a quart of fluid in and be good though. These transmissions are designed under normal driving conditions to never have to be serviced and that includes the fluid. But if your like me, you like to hot rod it once in a while. Then you should change your fluid every 45,000 miles or so. The drain plug is at the very bottom of the pan. You are gonna need a little over 11.5 quarts of Mercon(R) V Transmission fluid for the 3.0 as well as the 3.9 liter. The amount of fluid needed for the transmission is the same regardless of the engine you have.
Hope this post will help someone in the future. Also their is no dipstick to check the fluid level. You have to take the screw/bolt out on the side of the Tranny Pan.
