Question about 2006 Lincoln Zephyr
If it is unpredictable on how it will drive,I would say it is a bit dangerous to drive.If you are taking it to the dealer for service,if you are the original owner or are unsure about warranty status,You should call the dealer and find out if they will tow it at no cost/low cost,whatever they can do to assist you.If the drive to the dealer is mainly slow speed roads with not a whole lot of stops,you could probably drive.If there is no warranty and you do need a transmission,which sounds like a good probability although there are sensors and stuff which could affect performance,I have seen mostly poor results on ones which were used or rebuilt.Replace is the best to do.Also,if you do not go to the dealer,try to find a AAA approved garage.Aamco is not all it claims to be and is $$$.Also have the shop make sure that there is the proper transmission fluid level.Even if the dealer did the 30k check and had to replace transmission fluid,they could have missed it.Stranger things have happened.You should at least check it yourself before going anywhere because of liability issues if they did miss it.If you take it to the dealer and they did the 30k check and they find no transmission fluid,I seriously doubt that they would tell you what happened because bad news would hurt them.To check yourself,let the car run about 5 minutes,with car still running on flat level surface,check transmission fluid dipstick,should be between the engine and the firewall,do several dips and wipe with rag or paper towel after each to ensure accuracy.By the way,it is a little strange that a car with only 32k miles would have a transmission go bad.Good luck!
