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 97 grand caravan runs great when its cold, but when it heats up the ****** down shifts to first and usually stays there. sometimes it will jump back to 3rd. I noticed that it only does this when the...


It's actually your transmission fluid getting hot! Check trans. cooling lines going to radiator or aux.trans.cooler. Check fluid on dipstick with engine running, if you fluid is burnt looking not bright red anymore. Have your fliud flushed-changed and have service tech flush lines through radiator.You may solve problem this easy, but worse case senerio if it has done this for awhile you may need to rebuild trans. and get new cooling lines. My chrysler did the same thing but it cost me $1450.00 for the rebuilt trans.. After my trans. was rebuilt by the 35 years experianced shop,I found that the cooling lines were clogged and it burntout there fresh rebuild. The warranty I got paid for the second go around rebuilding trans.again. That company had to eat the costs. Now everything shifts great! Drove it on vacation! Make sure if you get trans. rebuilt they replace the governor sensor and solenoid sensor if your trans. is electronic like my 95 is.

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.

When i put the car into gear it is stuck in idle and when i rev the rpm's up to 3 then it kicks in and goes. Everytime i stop i have to do this.


the trans is slipping. check the level. with the engine hot, remove the dipstick and wipe clean. it will be located where the engine and trans meet. make sure it's not the oil dipstick. insert the stick and remove. the level should be between the lines or holes. if the fluid level is between those marks, don't add any. the type of fluid is printed on the dipstick. if the level is low add enough to the full mark only. add small quantities. 1/2 qt at a time. then check the level. if the level is good, have the trans fluid and filter changed. if that desn't work, there are mechanical problems.

Changed o2 senser the rpms are running high. dosent feel like trans. it changing gears, can go 40mph but runs at 5rpms


Look for a vacuum leak around the engine. you can do this with a propane torch, NO FLAME, just the gas will change the way the engine runs when you get near the leak.

Check engine Transmission


It sounds like you have a TV ( throttle valve) cable problem.
If you look at the throttle body on the engine intake manifold, you will see an accelerator cable, cruise control cable (if applicable) and a TV cable that runs to the transmission.
Make sure the tv cable is attached to the throttle body. If you pull on the cable you should feel spring resistance.
Let me know what you find.
