Question about 2006 Lincoln Zephyr

1 Answer

Have 2006 lincoln zephyr and i have some transmission slippage problems. on occasion when i put the car into drive it will not grab for a few seconds and then when it does it bangs into gear and sometimes when im slowing down it bangs into 2nd and 1st gear and sometimes i get slippage when accelerating from stand still. i took it in for servicing and was told that the transmission mount was broke and they welded the mounts and it was fixed but problem remains. does anyone know what the problem may be?

I own a 2006 Zephyr with similar issues. My dealer reset the transmission which briefly helped but the problem quickly came back. My son is a certified Master Mechanic with Ford but in business for himself. He tested the car and told me the valve body was bad, printed out the TSB's (technical service bulletins) issued by Ford for the 2006 Zephyr, 2007-08 MKZ's and other models equpped with an Aisin transmission. My car was a certified Preowned vehicle and I have the ESP Premium coverage for it. I took the car back to the dealer, who is replacing the valve body, it's being covered by the warranty and the $100.00 deductible is being waived because the valve body should have been replaced the 1st time. The TSB states that if there are no "codes" showing, the car has over 20,000 miles, the valve body should be replaced. It's an expensive repair but Ford is aware of the problem. Contact your dealer, let them know you are aware of the TSB's issued for the car, especially if you have the ESP protection. If not for my son I wouldn't have known. If you need any further info, contact me, I'll be glad to help you. My car has 62,000 miles, I love it and I'm sure glad I found the problem before I hit the 75,000 limit for the warranty.

First check the transmission fluid level. Low fluid level acts like the transmission is in neutral.

The transmission is not difficult to remove. One way is to remove the engine and transmission out through the hood. Another way is to put the car on a lift and lower the transmission. Either way, it is very heavy and requires special equipment to handle. Transmission change is a job for a shop with the proper equipment.

Why won't my 2006 Lincoln Zephyr start?

The engine and automatic transmission in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM and TCM (Power Train Control Module, Transmission Control Module). When a problem like this or other drive-ability related problems occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM

I have a 2006 lincoln zephyr that is starting to have starting problems. thought it was the battery but wasn't that. is there a relay switch or something thats between the ignition switch and the starter...

Mine is doing the exact same thing! The first time it completely failed to turn over was last week on 12/7/10. A jump start got it going and although it was hesitant to turn over on a few occasions afterwards, it would start ... until this morning, 12/14/10. I do not have a solution yet, but if you find out anything, please post it here. I will do the same.
