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.

Unfortunately it sounds like your automatic transmission has suffered a catastrophic failure. But to be sure, allow your vehicle to warm up to normal operating temprature, pull the oil level dipstick for the transmission and check the level. It should be in the checker portion of the stick to be correct level. If it is not, adding fluid may help the condition temporarily. Check for leaks while the engine is running. Have Lincoln or transmission specialist have a look. When it comes to transmissions in general, it is best to let the pros handle it for youl

You should check for a vacuum line or no vacuum condition at the modulator valve. Under acceleration there is low vaccum at the modulator so the trans thinks your are trying to pass, once you have achieved the upshift speed, a higher RPM than normal the care will shift hard. The service manual can show where to look for this valve. Hope it helps.

It is about time to replace your transmission or have it rebuilt
You may be able to squeak a little more use out of it if you use some lucas transmission additive.
This is only a bandaid and may not work either.
Used transmissions for these are $150-300.00 and shouldn't cost more than $300 or so to have someone install it.

Purchase a gear shift repair kit for your car. They are pretty cheap. About 20 bucs. The ball and bushings are probably worn.
