Question about 1990 Ford LTD Crown Victoria
Took car back to mechanic who did valvue cover gasket job, and know he's telling me to take my car to transmission specialist. Because in drive my car won't go over 40mph, but in drive2 it will go 60mph I'm afraid of driving the car now. Help!!!
Change out both the speed sensors for the transmission...when one goes bad the next will soon follow. A call to a parts store or ford center can get you the location of where they are located.

this is a combination of issues from whomever did the work..first, in order to remove the valve covers, all the hardware on top had to be removed, to include some vacuum equipment and hoses, and the shifter link arm on the drivers side of the firewall. if these hoses arent reconnected properly, the running of the car is effected, and if the shift link arm wasnt adjusted when reinstalled, it wont shift right at all.. if the folks who worked on it wont repair it for free(and you are allowed to watch them do it) then take your bill and the defunct car to another dealer garage who will make it right and charge the bill to the former garage..nothing gets my goat worse than someone who doesnt have a clue what they are doing to my car, thats why all my work is done by me, unless I cant do it myself..(which hasnt happened yet) if you know what you are doing, fixing the vacuum system hoses and such(using a diagram from the auto parts store,) will assist the running of the engine, the shifter adjust is eithewr up top on the steering column under the hood, or under the bottom at the transmission itself...put the car in park firmly and see where the shift arm(once loosened ) sets..adjust it to fit as its supposed to be and it should shift right with all gears present..good luck..
