When was the last time you had the fluid and filter changed? This trans should be done every 30,000. Is it shuddering as the torque converter locks up?

TSB 97-10-6 has a repair procedure for this ysmptom:

Vehicles equipped with an AODE or 4R70W transmission may experience a torque converter clutch shudder or vibration. This occurs under light to moderate acceleration above 56 km/h (35 mph) while in 3rd or 4th gear. This may be due to either transmission fluid breakdown and/or the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) calibration.

Verify that bulk fluid does not have moisture contamination. If suspected, use quart containers of MERCON®. Refill transmission with the proper amount of Motorcraft MERCON® Multi-Purpose Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) (XT-2-QDX).


Check emissions decal to verify vehicle has the latest calibration. If it does not, reprogram the PCM to new calibration level using Service Bay Diagnostic System (SBDS) or New Generation Star (NGS) Tester with May 1997 CD-ROM or later. Refer to the PCM Calibration Chart found at the end of this article for proper application.

96 crown Victoria lights flickering on and off

This problem is caused by a heat damaged headlight switch and the connector to it, replace both parts, the connector is available as a repair part as well as the switch. When you replace the connector (A MUST DO!) SOLDER IT ON, NO SPLICE CONNECTORS! Shrink tube the connections. If you don't replace both parts then the new switch will quickly fail again and back to blinking headlights.

Crown victoria model 1996 heating up and while running after fifteen minutes make sounds and suddening increase speed

Check your engine area for the heater hose coming from the radiator to the engine. This is where the thermostat is located. Squeeze or tap the hose vigorously to attempt loosening a stuck thermostat. If it still runs hot, find a large drain pan and place under hose on the ground. Wait for the engine to get to ambient air temperature and loosen hose and change the thermostat.

1996 ford crown vic police model hard shifting

Do you have a check engine light on? The line pressure is too high in the transmission. This is either from a bad epc solenoid in the transmission or the computer commanding the pressure high from a bad MAF. If you have a bad MAF you should have other MAF (Mass Airflow Sensor) codes in the computer.
