Question about 1995 Lincoln Continental

1 Answer

My 95 Lincoln Continental has been having what I think is transmission problems. It does fine from 0-25 or 30 mph, but then struggles to shift up to the next gear. If I push it to 35-40 mph it struggles a bit louder, then "jumps" into gear and is fine until I have to slow down again. The last time I drove it, it started acting like it wanted to die, and smoking terribly. I babied it back home (less than a mile) and when it had cooled down, I checked the transmission fluid and it was very low. I added fluid, and have been afraid to try again for fear of getting stranded with no roadside service and no money to pay for a tow.

The last time I experienced this the gearbox governor gear (which are usually made of plastic had lost its drive teeth. Did you notice if the speedo still worked.

Where is the transmission solenoid located on a 98 lincoln continental


Your Continental is equipped with a TRANSAXLE, and I can think of four different solenoids, not including the internal shift solenoids, associated with the transaxle.
It may be better to describe what your ISSUE is, so that a diagnosis may be suggested for you.

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.

I think it might be a fuel delivery problem.I would check the fuel pressure and make sure its within the specs for that engine.Its sounds like it could be a weak fuel pump.When ever the engine does'nt get enough fuel to mix with the air then it causes a lean condition which will make it misfire.If it was an ignition problem it would misfire whether it was cold or hot.

If it is an automatic check and make sure that you have enough automatic transmission fluid in the car to little fluid will not allow the transmission to shift.

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.

1997 Lincoln Continental transmission


I am not entirely certain I understand what button you are describing. However I think you are talking about the button that has to be depressed in order to shift gears. Aside from the transmission not being able to return to the park position, it has no effect on the key being removed from the ignition lock cylinder. The ignition lock cylinder wearing out and not releasing is a very common problem and requires a new ignition lock cylinder.
