Question about 2003 Lincoln Navigator

Lincoln Navigator transmission problem

My 03 Navigator all of a sudden started to experience shifting problems from 1st to 2nd gear ( auto transmission). Sounds similar to the Toyota camry transmission shifting problem previously posted. Going from 1st to 2nd gear, the rpm will hit almost 4000 before it shifts very roughly, like a big **** with a sound sometimes like a thud. Once in high gear it is fine, but again slowing down, it shifts roughly. It also does it when I shift to reverse. Could it be just a solenoid switch or do I need a overhaul. car has 80K miles

Auto transmission will not shift into 2nd gear


A problem a lot of drivers experience is their cars won't shift from first to second gear. That could lead to number of different problems, overheating being one of them. If you think there is a problem with your transmission then the first thing you should always do is check your transmission fluid levels.

This solves a lot of transmission problems but if you still can't shift then you may need to look at your throttle cables. A faulty throttle cable that has too much slack can prevent proper shifting, or shifting at all for that matter.

97 town car not shifting from 1st to 2nd gear


Check the Coolant (antifreeze) level. My 94 continental has a hard time shifting from 2nd to 3rd when the level is low. Also, this may indicate that the transmission fluid is too old to work properly. The transmission fluid is cooled at the bottom of the radiator, since cool fluid works better than hot fluid (especially when the trans fluid is old) that could make the transmission not shift properly. Keep the coolant level up until you can have the trans fluid checked.

I have found that this lights flashes due to transmission slippage, it may not be felt by the driver but it is slipping, that is likely what is going on here.

03 navigator gear shift gets stuck in the parked postion and wont shift to drive what's wrong?


The switch on the brake master cylinder is FAMOUS for shorting out. Unplug it and find the blown fuse. In the fuse box under the hood, fuse 1.5 Your truck may be under a recall for that switch, call the dealer with your VIN number and see if it qualifies.

Manual transmission will not shift into any gear, even when the clutch is completely depressed. It's a hard shift to begin with and now when i have to come to a stop and say move it out of 4th gear and try...


The problem sounds like the clutch. If you put it in 1st., then start it up, does it try to move with you foot on the clutch? Does the clutch pedal feel different than normal.

What you need to check is the transmission release bearing because if there is a clearance on the release bearing you will encounter this problem and also check the transmission oil.

93 LincolnTown Car will not shift above 2nd.


Have you tried taking the car in for maintenance? Usually on most (older) auto transmissions there is a hose coming off of the exhaust manifold or carburetor area that provides the pressure for the transmission fluid. If that hose doesn't have a good seal, your shifting may be difficult and the transmission may not stay in the gear you want it to.
