You should check for a vacuum line or no vacuum condition at the modulator valve. Under acceleration there is low vaccum at the modulator so the trans thinks your are trying to pass, once you have achieved the upshift speed, a higher RPM than normal the care will shift hard. The service manual can show where to look for this valve. Hope it helps.

MY 2002 LINCOLN CONTINENTAL WILL NOT SHIFT FROM FIRST GEAR


William, Check fluid level and condition first, top up if needed, if dark and burnt smelling, internal damage/wear may exists. Sounds like shift solenoid or valve body mechanical fault. There may be codes stored in computer that can be scanned, diagnosed and estimate for repair at a good shop. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

My 1999 lincoln Continental wont shift out of "PARK"


Is the vehicle parked on an incline? The parking pin may be slightly jammed. If you can VERY CAREFULLY nudge the vehicle up the hill an inch or two, using another vehicle, the shift lever may free itself.
If the vehicle is parked on level ground, suspect the LOCKING SOLENOID for the shift lever.
Less likely, the parking pin may be jammed (inside the transmission), or the shift lever linkage may have become damaged.

97 town car not shifting from 1st to 2nd gear


Check the Coolant (antifreeze) level. My 94 continental has a hard time shifting from 2nd to 3rd when the level is low. Also, this may indicate that the transmission fluid is too old to work properly. The transmission fluid is cooled at the bottom of the radiator, since cool fluid works better than hot fluid (especially when the trans fluid is old) that could make the transmission not shift properly. Keep the coolant level up until you can have the trans fluid checked.

My 97 lincoln Continental go's forward just fine. I can feel the transmission shift into reverse but will not move. If I give it the gas the engine speed stops at about 1500 rpm


The TCM or transmission control module may be bad or a stuck trans. shift soleniod. It may be worth it just to take it to a certified transmission shop to have them run a diagnostic check to retrieve the TCM's trouble codes then go from there.

Just scanned my 1999 300m. It went into safe mode while me wife was driving it home- 2nd gear only. It had a code P1714 and P0700 come up on the scanner. I can't find anything about the P1714.
