Lincoln town car overdrive

Easy, most likely problem is low transmission fluid. Your owners manual will tell you how to check that if you are not certain. If the level is okay, there are many, many, many other things that could be wrong. Most transmission shops will test it for you, no charge; but they usually will want to rebuild your transmission. It seems they no longer fix a specific problem, they just rebuild. This old of a car... maybe it's time. I hope this is helpful.

Lincoln town car 97 transmission problem. I have a town car 97, the problem is when I brake or let the car slow down by itself and when the car slow down until 48 km/h I can feel the down shift maybe from...

That doesn't sound like a problem, it sounds like it's shifting out of "Overdrive" due to low RPM. That would be normal. If it's more noticeable now than in the past, that's likely just wear of the parts (that's an old transmission at this point), or need transmission fluid checked/replaced. Only someone who knows transmissions can really diagnose if there is any problem, but what you are feeling is the normal downshift out of "overdrive" into the next gear, the only question is is it more noticeable now than in the past.
