Question about Lincoln Aviator

2 Answers

I have a 2004 lincoln aviator that has been giving me lots of problems, however my current problem has something to do with my transmission...I THINK! I took it to a mechanic and he told me it was probably the cylinoids, so we fixed it, but it still seems to have the power to drive, but the truck does NOT move...all you can hear is the engine vroom! So my mechanic is going to have to drop my transmission. What could this problem be? PLEASE HELP!!!

When the engine is running the onboard computer should show the "check engine" light for any recorded problems including the transmission.

The Solenoids were a possibility. There is also a major part called a Transfer case. It is like a second transmission. It connects power to the drive wheels. There are Vacuum switches in some models and Electric in others. If the Vacuum switch (SERVO) is not kicking into gear the engine will spin and the wheels will not. It is something to check.

Also your Lincoln may still be covered by a 6 Year, 70,000Mile Powertrain Warranty. It depends when the vehicle was bought new and the Warranty should transfer to a second owner. Its a Perk for buying Lincoln. A call to a Lincoln Dealer with your Vin# will tell, and you can also ask if there are any Service bulletins about your problem.

I hope my Reply is helpful to you.

I too have been having MAJOR problems with my 2004 Aviator! So frustrated! I've spent over $500 with my mechanic replacing the cam shaft sensor and crank shaft sensor which are the codes the computer is recording. Well it still runs like **** and says the same codes!!! Now I have to take it to the dealer and pay an arm and leg just to find out what is wrong... if they can figure it out! Not happy!!!

    First, as I told the other client, Lincolns have a 6 Year and 70,000 Mile Warranty. Don't pay for something they should cover. Go over your Receipt with the Dealer or call Lincoln Customer Service and arrange for refund. Drivetrain problems include the engine.

    You do not have to pay for Diagnostics at Autozone or Oreillys. They will scan your vehicle free. They can also clear the trouble codes on the computer. They can show you the part and sell you the part to fix it.

    Next, when they worked on your Aviator they should have erased the old codes. It is possible there is a 3rd problem which they missed. We leased a new 2004 Aviator and it never needed anything in 3 years and 44,000 miles. This was driven by the Lady of the house and she never once felt it was undependable in Michigan Winters.

    Look on the top cover of the engine. If you see DOHC on it, tell them you heard about "Cam Phasers" being a problem. There is an extra Warranty Coverage for ALL Ford products with DOHC motors produced within certain years. Check NHTSA.com and F150 type Blogs for more info.

2004 Lincoln aviator goes into gear but won't move


bad transmission maybe. Try going into a lower gear (2 or 1) and giving it a little gas and holding it there. (about 2500 rpm) Hold it there for about 30 seconds.
If it still doesnt move, look under at the side of the transmission where the shifter cable connects and make sure it is moving.
Make sure the brake is on and the wheels are blocked and have a friend shift it back and forth while you look.
Sometimes, the connection pin comes out and you wont shift. .
If it does move right away, head to the transmission shop.
