SOURCE: E40d trans will not shift into 3rd or 4th gear, only rev. 1+2

check or replace your thottle position sensor tps that trans needs to know where the throttle is to shift if it is bad it will do as you say wont shift to third
another telltale is it will act like it goes into lockup when shifting into reverse and stall the engine

Why does my 1987 mercury grandmarquise bog down afer it shifts to a higher gear.

I had a Mercury Grand Marquis that had a similar problem, poor low end performance and bogging down after shifting. I replaced the mass air flo unit and no more problem, also it might help if you clean the throttle bore and related parts , make sure to use the proper cleaning spray to prevent damage to coating inside bore

When accelerating tachometer keeps rising and wont shift into 3rd gear, rpms just keep reving. Car is brand new only 1000 miles on it

Go straight to the dealership and have it repaired. Don't let anybody else work on it. It may void your warranty.

My 1990 Mercury Grand Marquis won't shift into higher gears, It's also got a really bad whine when u try n push it ... I've checked the transmission fluid and added more, but didn't seem to help, any other...

The first thing you need to check is the Throttle Valve Cable. This cable runs from the throttle body to the transmission and controls gear changes according to throttle position. It may have come disconnected from the throttle lever, or could even be stuck in a "wide-open" position. If this cable is okay then there is a real good chance that the direct clutches have failed. This clutch pack is used in 3rd and 4th gears.

Transmission wont shift to 3rd or 4th gear

time for a new transmission cable, very simple, and if thats not the case you may need a new filter and fresh fluid, and if that fails it may have to be rebuilt

Tranny trouble

Sounds like your idle controll sensor, it most commonly looks like a spark plug, it plugs in to the side of the transmission, near the belle housing. But for now try a quart of lucas oil in your transmission, if that causes it to shift, then your bands are stretched, and most likely need a transmission.
