Possible it could be in the valve body on the transmission but also could be a cut seal inside...no fix in the tail shaft
probably has to come out

1995 lincoln towncar quit going in reverse without any warning


You may have been facing downhill and if your tranny is low on fluid, I can see where this might be your problem. Warm up engine and check the tranny fluid level in park with the engine running. An uneven surface is not a good place to find your answer, but if you have absolutely NO tranny fluid on the grid, I'd certainly try adding a pint or so to see if that'd make a difference.

Have to rev engine to 1500 rpm's to get the transmission to go into low gear, will not shift into 2nd gear or any higher gear goes right into reverse in low rpms, was fine prior to this had just driven7...


Thats not good. Usually if you are having to rev the engine the line pressure is really low. either the pump is going bad or your have a huge leak somewhere. If reverse works fine without revving then it isn't the main pump.
Long story short someone is going to have to get pretty dirty. The transmission will likely need rebuilt. You might have someone check the valvebody just to make sure something isn't stuck. A look at the pan will give a good idea how much wear is on the rest of the transmission.

sounds like transmission damaged. if forward gears are operational, suspect transmission failure. If nothing working ( either in 2 or 4 wheel drive) suspect transmission or transfer case.

It sounds like your torque converter may be going out in the transmission. My first thought would be the high pressure lines, but you had them replaced which goes to the next in line being the converter.

Engine Rev Trans does not grab going Forward


We had the very same problem and I found this post somewhere on the net and it worked! After ours stopped going forward, it went in reverse fine too then it stopped moving completely. We just pulled the sensor off today and are looking for a new one but at least the car goes great now. 15th Jul 2007, 21:04 Bought my wife a 99 Ford Taurus at auction. Like others the Transmission sensor gave out. A temporary quick fix is to open the hood, and simply pull off the sensor connector plug on top of the transmission. The transmission will now operate properly in both OD and drive. You will notice your rpm's are steady as your speed goes up - loss of fuel economy due to the failed sensor ( to technical to explain here...). Two things to do: Change out the old transmission fluid immediately - its gonna require synthetic fluid at a higher price, but is worth it as it shifts far better now. And change out the coolant. In fact, I suggest changing out ALL of the fluids and start clean. Until you get the sensor replaced your fuel economy will **** for a while, but its better than not having wheels at all and it IS safe to drive.
