When checking the transmission fluid always check it while vehicle is running, if you overfill the transmission YOU WILL BURN IT UP. secoundly the high RPM is most likley a cause by a bad TPS Throttle Posiction Sensor. and yes the high RPM can cause transmission damage if you do not fix the problem pretty quick .in this case good idea to do soits getting harder and harder to get parts for these cars TPS-25.00 to 45.00 if you fix it your self, simple to do

check your cam position sensor (CPS) these can sometimes go should be able to find this sensor,on top of the engine,between the valve cover and timing cover with 3 or 4 wires coming from it.
however, the valve cover and timing cover might need to be removed, so some digging is involoved.good luck.

Mercury mistake

Exhaust leaks can throw off the oxygen sensors, which affect engine fuel and timing. Moving out of park could be a problem with the shift linkage. Start by checking your transmission fluid level and color. Get the codes read and start fixing whatever is causing the check engine. Most states car inspections will fail a car with the check engine light on so you need to cleanup the problems before your next inspection.

My back up lights don't work, what should i do?

check 15 amp fuse (may be in engine compartment relay box). If fuse is good, check switch on transmission. To check the switch, pull the connector off and short the two outer terminals together. With the key on, the backup light should come on. If they do, replace the switch. The switch looks something like this:

The neutral safety switch, otherwise known as the park/neutral position switch, prevents the vehicle from being started in any position other than PARK and NEUTRAL. It also functions as the back-up lamp switch.
The neutral safely switch is threaded into the transmission case. When the gearshift lever is placed in either the PARK or NEUTRAL position, a cam, which is attached to the transmission throttle lever inside the transmission, contacts the neutral safety switch and provides a ground to complete the starter solenoid circuit. The back-up light switch is incorporated into the neutral safety switch.
The center terminal is for the neutral safety switch and the two outer terminals are for the back-up lights.
There is no adjustment for the switch. If a malfunction occurs, the switch must be removed and replaced.
