    I've forgotten the door code for my 2008 Lincoln MKZ. I'm told that the code is somewhere on the car, but I don't know where to find it. Where should I look?

This is going to be either a programing issue in the transmission control module or an main control valve body concern. This vehicle is under warranty for 48 months or 50000 miles so I would have my local dealer take a look at it.
Ford has a new techincal service bulletin out on a concern similar to what you are describing. It states that if vehicle has less then 20000 miles to reprogram the PCM and TCM, if it has over 20000 miles they recommend to replace the main conrol valve body. The TSB number is 08-24-01

Try banging on the fuel tank while someone cranks over the engine. If vehicle starts or tries to start, suspect a fuel pump failure and replacement will be required

If you are stopped and can turn the wheel back and forth, it is not the power steering.

Sounds like the transmission

The jerking and hesitating is makingme nuts..Now

the jerking may be from the 3-4 spring in the valve body of the transmission. as for the shakes well it is a good chance that the rotors need be turned or just replaced. as you go through water when the brakes heat up it can cause warping in the rotors due to wear or just too thin. also check ball joints. Lincoln had recalls on the lower ball joints failing. its one piece and about 300.00

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