I have a 95 lincoln town car My transmission will not go any faster than 40mph help. I did a transmission filter n oil change n even added some Lucas an still nothing Plz help. Could it be a simple fix....


Kinda vague description. If you mean to say that the car has the engine revving up while only going 40MPH, it would mean you are not getting through all of the gears.

If the engine does not rev up, and you can only go 40MPH with the trans shifting through all of the gears, it is probably not a trans problem.

You need to have a pressure test on the trans if the engine is revving up to only go 40MPH. The main part is a part called a Torque converter. It is the pump supplying pressure to the inside of the trans.

If a trans is slipping, then you can have pressure but the metal parts inside are not gripping.

My best advice is if there are no "check engine" lights on the dash, go to a Repair place which does work on engines. If the problem is the trans, they will send you to a trans shop. Can not say the same for starting with a trans shop. Too many bad operators who would throw in another trans and "discover" it is a simple engine problem after charging you.

Fixya used to have a listing service for good shops. Do not know since internal Format changed here if that is still the case.

My 2001 ford escape suv doesn't go more than 40 miles p.h. when i mean to go faster


Is the engine revving high at 40mph? If so then chances are the trans has not shifted. Is engine very sluggish, or won't rev high, possibly with a hissing sound? If so then you may have a restricted exhaust system.

1993 Mercury Cougar XR-7 V-6, Overheating


Your problem could be the coolant temp sensor, or it could be the gauge itself, but something 2 do is if you can get it to a dealer, or a parts store. If you cant get it there, you can get an OBD I scanner and retrieve the code and know why the check engine light is on, but it could be from any of the sensors on the car, would be best to get it scanned.

!993 Mercury Cougar XR-7 3.6 V6


If you are referring to the Check Engine light then this indicates there is a problem with the emissions system. Have the ECU scanned with an OBD2 scan tool. The fault code that has been set by the ECU will tell you where to look for the problem. If the engine is running fine there is no hurry, but do have this looked into. If you are referring to the oil pressure light stop driving the car until you get this repaired as it may be serious.

Over-revving in 5th at 75mph all of a sudden


If the car rev'd up but did not speed up at the same time the clutch is starting to slip. Check the adjustment and recheck driving. When the clutch starts to wear this is how they act, only most people ignore whats happening and keep driving till adjustments won't fix it and the clutch has to be replaced. Have adjustment checked and keep an eye on it and hopefullty you won't need a clutch yet.

Transmission does not shift into 3rd and/or overdrive


Well, you could try changing the speed sensor, or modulator valve, which ever that model has. And change the filter and fluid. If it's plugged many of the problems you describe could occur. Good luck.
