Question about 1993 Lincoln Town Car

1 Answer

I just bought a '93 Lincoln Town Car, 210K miles. My first thought it to have all of the fluids replaced to "reset" the timer, so to speak. Trans Fluid, Engine Oil, PS fluid, Brake fluid, Diff Oil, Coolant...what do you think/ Good idea? Bad idea?

1986 Lincoln Town Car drag shifts 1st to2nd. I just drained refilled trans,new filter and gasket, What would make the 1, 2 shift point go up to about 2500 to 3000 rpm's? it finally shifts then acts ok


I am not familiar with your specific car. However I would suggest checking the fluid level of the trans. If you do not have one get an owners manual or repair manual and make sure you are performing the check correctly. Some transmissions require a hot check, some require that you cycle through the gears just before checking, things like that. If there are special instructions you are not following you may not have refilled the trans to the proper level.

I would have to agree that the shift lock acculater is going bad, Because if the transmission is shifting OK when it is in gear then the transmission is OK, But if you want to keep it that way you can change the trans fluid and filter and gasket, After doing that add a bottle of Prolong transmission treatment use the PROLONG TRANSMISSION ONLY itg can be bought at PEP BOYS or some other auto parts store's do not use any other type of treatment because the PROLONG is the best it treats the parts and the metal not the fluid, I put it in a ford LTD trans with over 200,000 miles on it and the trans is still working fine and now it has 278,899 miles on it.but also check the fuses and the locking system

Remove transmission on a 1989 lincoln town car


Very Heavy trans.. 1. disconnect Battery ground cable. YOU must disconnect the shift linkage, The exuast system, the cooling lines, wires to switches, Remove the drive shaft, remove starter, remove the dipstick tube, Remove all bolts that attach the trans to the engine.. When you take it out trans fluid will be able to spill from rear area where the drive shaft spline is.. i suggest if you are going to remove the trans drain the fluid first.. WHILE YOU HAVE IT OUT REPLACE the filter and rear trans seal. after installation replace fluid with new fluid. I suggest before you try this you buy the Chilton Manual for your car.. Small investment to do it right.. This is a big job for the home mechanic if you do not know what you are doing.

Check the fluid if it is not red and looks dark and smells burnt then an overhaul or replacement is needed, it is possible for transmission specialists to fix shift problems sometimes, but if the fluid is burnt then it is at most a temporary solution.

93 taurus overdrive not working


IF you have checked the fluid level and it is good then if you look at the fluid on the trans fluid dip stick at it is a dirty brownish color then your transmission is bad. If the color is a nice clear reddish and the fluid level is good then Overdrive is probably gone. Replace transmission or drive it until it quits altogether.

I have a 1986 lincoln town car an it shakes when you hit about 15 throu 38 mph


These cars are known for there shutter problems when you get up into the miles. Could be many things. If it is only at those speeds i would think about getting the trans filter and fluid replaced. Like willis929 said check tires and wheel bearings. Other than that would need more information.
Hope you find the fix.
