    Does the car exhibit any misfire under acceleration? If this is the case then you need this situation repaired first.

There is a spring damaged in the valve body, these are known for causing loss of 4th and 5th gear and an E where the shift indicator is read on the dash. The spring is the 3-4 prestroke spring, and an updated one is made by Sonnax and available through Fatsco in NJ, look them up on the web.
It is a 6 dollar part but does require some serious time to reinstall, and is not really a DIY job unless you have a lot of patience (the entire bottom control section/valve body needs to be removed from the car and serviced on a bench) and an inch-lb torque wrench. galaxiejeff@embarqmail.com

If you drive it a few days like that ,you will have a $3000 repair bill

instead of a $332.20 Solenoid Trans Pack, I put in my 2004

Any time you have, any trans issues,you stop driving it immediately
You never drive again, until diagnosed and repaired

I used to own a trans repair shop.

You will have to add labor to yours.

E=error,the gear indicator has lost a signal from the transmission as to what gear it is in.
when you cycle the key and its ok,means it is a soft code and not a hard code.you need to have it checked on a computer before you cycle the key,

What is wrong when 2001 lincoln ls will go in


The problem is 8 out of 10 the forward gears .the pump or body valve in the bottom of the box are locking up the forward gear drive band at about the same pressure as driving at 40mph so it just locks up and stalls the engine.
If you want to take off the gearbox pan and remove the body valve assy and check out the piston and forward band .. but there isent to much you can do as the experts will have to do the job.
OR get a second hand g/box and fit it your self but make sure that the converter comes out with the box and goes back on the box before refitting .other wise you will damage the g/b/seal fitting the box and it will leak oil ...
