Question about 1998 Lincoln Town Car
Transaxle makes a one time peculiar noise after shifting from first to second. It only happens once per start up. You can stop and go all day and it won’t happen again until you turn the car off and re-start.
Example, In the morning when the car is cold and the rpms are a little high I let the car go forward on it’s own, the trans will shift to second normally, no noise until you touch the gas to drive away.
Hard to describe the noise. It's about a second in duration. Sounds like fluid??? Not gears or a loose rattle. But I cant really tell for sure. Other than that the car shifts great.
Is it possible that the sound is happening every time you hit 14 mph after a fresh start? The TC does a ABS check 14 mph that runs the pump for a second.

U need to have a transmission shop test drive this, but it sounds like the planetary gear set may be failing.
