It is most likely the transmission.

    Once the transmission starts slipping, additives cannot really fix it. It would be like putting a bandaid on it. Most likely it wouldn't help it at all. You don't want to get stuck with it somewhere thinking it was fixed, when only it would make it possibly last a little longer. Best thing to do is change it with a good used one. I have been down that road, just trying to help you do the best thing.

Transmission slipping on my lincoln,1994 town car


Assuming the transmission fluid level is good and the fluid is not brown and giving off a burning smell, you may have a transmission that's getting old and will slip from time to time. There may be a band adjustment you can have done but if the transmission is original, 17years is pretty old for a transmission.

I have a 1994 Lincoln Contenental. Car drives just fine in first gear but will not shift into second gear.


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.

1995 lincoln occasionally has problems getting in gear to go. Seems like it is stuck in neutral. Lasts a few seconds then it gets into gear and goes.


SEEMS LIKE TRANSMISSION FLUID LOW.TRANSMISSION SLIPPING TRYING TO GO IN DRIVE.CHECK TRANSMISSION FLUID LEVEL. IF LOW ADD FLUID UNTIL YOU REACH FULL MARK ON TRANSMISSION DIP STICK. WITH ENGINE RUNNING A IN OPERATING TEMPERATURE.IF FLUID LEVEL OKAY.CHANGE TRANSMISSION FLUID AND FILTER IF YOU HAVE NOT CHANGED IN A LONG WHILE.A DIRTY STOPPED UP FILTER WILL CAUSE TRANSMISSION TO SLIP.CANT PICK UP FLUID.

Transmission 1994 lincoln towncar- 89000 miles


I would not conclude you have a trans problem,as some other issue maybe be confusing the shift stratagy.
The temperature issues and time driven are the key here.
I would check for stored codes first.
Then go over the basics-Spark Plugs,Ignition,Egr Valve,Vacuum Leaks,MAF Sensor and so forth.
Clean up the engine driveablity issues first.

Becareful when considering changing the trans fluid. That will not fix anything and may cause it to slip more,if you get to that point in your testing

The time parked is not a concern ,as I feel these issues where there before.
If the engine is not running correctly ,you will get just what you discribed,with the shifting up and down
