1999 Lincoln Continental Transmission whining & slippage when shifting gears

My problem is that when my car reaches normal operating temperatures the transmission sometimes begins to make a really annoying whining noise and will slip or have difficulty shifting into different gears. If I turn off the car and restart it all is fine. The noise is gone and it shifts beautifully. The fluid is full and recently changed. It feels as if something electrical has malfunctioned with something remaining engaged creating the whining noise but as eaerlier stated, once restarted it seems to reset everything and drivng is back to routine.

The last time I experienced this the gearbox governor gear (which are usually made of plastic had lost its drive teeth. Did you notice if the speedo still worked.

I am not entirely certain I understand what button you are describing. However I think you are talking about the button that has to be depressed in order to shift gears. Aside from the transmission not being able to return to the park position, it has no effect on the key being removed from the ignition lock cylinder. The ignition lock cylinder wearing out and not releasing is a very common problem and requires a new ignition lock cylinder.

Check your fluid level first. Next, you may want to get a filter job on it....but try checking your fluid level first with engine temp at normal...or have been running for at least 5 to 10 minutes. Sounds as though you have low fluid.

How do I flush my transmission myself


Is your transmission automatic or manual ?

For automatic, lift vehicle and secure on jack stands and chuck rear wheels. Remove transmission drain plug and then remove all bolts that hole pan in place. Once pan is off, remove bolts that hold filter and remove. Installation is in reverse order. Once vehicle on ground, begin adding Trans fluid with vehicle running. Check level once it's reached normal operating temperature.

My 1999 lincoln Continental wont shift out of "PARK"


Is the vehicle parked on an incline? The parking pin may be slightly jammed. If you can VERY CAREFULLY nudge the vehicle up the hill an inch or two, using another vehicle, the shift lever may free itself.
If the vehicle is parked on level ground, suspect the LOCKING SOLENOID for the shift lever.
Less likely, the parking pin may be jammed (inside the transmission), or the shift lever linkage may have become damaged.

Makes whining noise


This could be a stuck Bendix gear. The Bendix gear is the gear that engages with the flywheel on the engine when you start the car, and if it hasn't retracted it will whine.

Check with a local garage, but do so soon.

Engine making whining noise


There are a couple of things to check. If your power steering pump is low on fluid, or a bad bearing is in the Alternator, they will whine. The PCV valve or any hole in the Vacuum lines will whine as RPM is increased. Even having the Air filter box not fully seated will make a whining noise.

Now both automatic and manual transmissions can whine as RPM is increased. Check fluid for each.

Serpetine belt and pulleys-can make noise.

Sometimes you can shift into neutral at any speed and the engine rpm will drop almost instantly as the car rolls at speed. If the problem disappears as soon as the rpm drops, then an engine part probably is the reason.

Torque Converter Scratching Noise


REmove the inspection plate at the front of the tranny and inspect the flex drive plate . IT will have the teeth for the starter motor , 3 or 4 bolts for the torque converter and 6 bolts that attatch it to the crank. ou will probably find cracks in the plate. If so you will have to remove tranny and replace plate.

It still could be the throw-out bearing. When going bad, they have a high pitched whine or whistling, and if bad enough, could imitate a vibrating sensation. IDK, I would have a mechanic there listen to it.
