Question about 2004 Lincoln Aviator
I have a 2003 Navigator and am having problems getting it out of park. sometimes I sit and wait and I can feel like a solinoid clicks in and then I can shift. happens quite often. Is it a big problem to fix and how. Sid
In auto-transmission vehicles, it is a switch activated (off the brake) solenoid that releases the shifter. In your case the solenoid switch might have a loose connection or it might be partly damaged, so even after releasing the brake you have to wait for sometime to get the solenoid switch to get working, and thus a delay in switching gears. (If the solenoid switch works properly, it will get instantly activated on releasing the brake). So I recommend to check the loose connection of the solenoid, if not it needs to be replaced. If the delay is only marginal, then you can go with this solenoid without replacement. There is no other harm to the vehicle.
The solenoid switch might look like this :
