Question about Lincoln Town Car

3 Answers

I am feeling a rumbling, vibration that appears to be coming from the rear end of my 2003 Lincoln Town Car. It began about a month ago and seems to be happening more frequently. Originally it only occurred at highway speeds, but now happens at lower speeds too. My transmission is changing smoothly and appears to be fine. Is my rear end going bad?

    I recently replaced the factory tires with Vogues. That's when the vibration started. I had the tires re-balanced and has a wheel alignment, but vibration continued. I read that a bad air bag suspension can put stress on the wheel bearings and rear axle. Could the tires have affected the wheel bearings?

    It was caused by torque shudder. I gradually changed the transmission fluid and put an additive which solved the problem. Thanks for all the responses!

My 2003 Lincoln had new brakes and rotors 6 months ago - now, i notice a squeek when I apply the brakes - also, on snow when lightly braking, my brake pedal pushes itself against my foot in an up and down...


if you had brakes and rotors 6 months ago,did you do just front or just rear?
if you did front and squeal is in front,the new pads got hot and it glazed them,but the rotors are you pulsating pedal,are you sure they did rotors and pads?
there is no way this should be happening in 6 months.

2000 Lincoln LS rumble from 40 - 45 mph


See If the pitch changes when you swerve the car from left to right. You don'e have to swerve hard enough to scareanyone, just enough to load one side more than another. If the pitch changes, you likly have a bad wheel bearing or tire. Tires will make any noise a wheel bearing will so switch tires first side to side and see if the problem fgollows the tires. If not then check the wheel bearing.
Also and maybe first:

The fact that the noise is limited to such a narrow speed could also indicate an aerodynamic issue such as a roof rack or bike rack or somthing like that having moved and is now vibrating.

94 town car leaking coolant


you have a leaking water pump... there is a "weep" hole at the bottom of it and when the inner seal goes bad it starts slowly leaking out of it as a warning sign to replace it. It will do that for a few days, or months even, until it starts leaking profusely.
