check the transmission fluid level first and also when was last time you had a tranny service new fluid and filter because the screen could be plugged and not allowing the fluid to get to the torque converter also have the catalytic converter checked out

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.

Check trans fluid with engine running - if low, top off. If fluid level is fine then try changing the transmission filter located inside the transmission pan. You may also have an issue with dirty trans fluid - if it is not pinkish but brown then have a transmission power flush done, then change filter.

Sounds like a bad speed sensor. Perform an ODBII scan soon. ECU should delay upshift until coolant temp senses warm up. It will not work right unless a signal is present from speed sensor.

Transmission on my 99 T&C hesitates at times


Its the begining of the ruins of the torque converter. Its stator is letting go before it has enough time to build torque. Pretty soon you'll smell the ATF start to heat up.
You'll get a check engine light and will only be able to drive in 3rd and reverse. Take it to a Transmission repair shop. Why waite to be stranded.

Have the transmission serviced, Change the transmission fluid and filter and have the transmission shop check for any codes and see what the line pressure is at. I fluid could just be dirty and the servos could be sticking due to the dirt. "metal and clutch wear" try adding some transmission additives to loosen up the dirt and then have the transmission service after 100 miles of driving. Service intervals for your transmission should be no more then two years or 36,000 mile to keep the servos from sticking which the cause transmission failure. Good luck and hope this helps, keep me posted, be glad to answer any more questions you may have.
