Question about 2004 Lincoln Aviator

1 Answer

Same problem with 04 Aviator

I have the same problem with my 04 Aviator. I went to go and it wouldn't go in reverse. I had to pop the cap off and discovered a little piece of plastic on the shaft was busted. Instead of buying the piece I have to buy the whole gear shift assembly at $130 plus labor. This defenitely sounds like a recall issue.

You could possibly have wheel bearing problems
that is very serious. If you can't check yourself
hire somebody. It means your wheel or wheels could
come off going down the interstate. Jack up one
side to clear the ground. Wiggle the wheel and tire
if it's tight ok, if it's loose very important to fix it
i think the AWD on the 04 is full time. The 05 can be cut off.
hope it's not too bad.

I went to reverse the car out of a parking place at the grocery store and it wouldn't go in reverse. What could the problem be.\

Hello and welcome to FixYa!
One cause why it wouldn't go in reverse is because of a bad TCM (transmission control module). If the TCM is faulty something in the transmission will surely fail. Please have the TCM checked and replace if necessary.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
