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.

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.

Could be your alternator or a bad idler pulley. Is the transmission good? It may be the tranny or your differential whining.

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.

Whining when i press gas


normally, the only part of your automatic transmission that will make a whining noise is the pump. it usually whines when iether the fluid is low or more commonly when the transmission oil filter is getting plugged up.

the power steering pump will also make a whining noise too.

turn the wheel all the way to the right and hold steady pressure against the stop. this puts maximum force on the power steering pump and, if the power steering pump is the one making the whine, it will change the sound of it. (usually louder).

if the trans pump is making the whine noise, it should sound different in neutral compared to drive. this test will really only work if it make the noise without the vehicle moving. if it wont do it at idle hold the rpms at 2000 or so.

if you decide the noise is coming from the transmission, and the transmission filter has not been replaced (assuming you installed a used transmission), replace the filter by removing the oil pan.



oh and also, if it is the power steering pump you should be able to make it make the whining noise while the vehicle is stationary. if it wont make noise unless its moving its not the power steering pump.

Transmission cooler light comes on periodically. When car is allowed to sit for a few minutes light goes out and shifts normal


See 3rd dot point. It sounds like transmission fluid is getting hot and triggering the warning light. Check fluid level. Check trans cooler and cooler lines to be sure trans fluid is flowing through cooler to transmission. Transmission fluid temperature (TFT) sensor
The TFT sensor is located on the internal wiring harness to the solenoid valves in the fluid pan.
It is a resistor and measures the transmission fluid temperature.
The transmission fluid temperature is used by the PCM for the following functions:
  • Applying the torque converter clutch is not permitted until the transmission fluid reaches a certain temperature,
  • engagement of 4th gear is prevented in extreme sub-zero temperatures until the normal operating temperature is reached,
  • if the transmission fluid temperature is excessive, a pre-set fixed shift curve is selected and the torque converter lock-up clutch is closed in "2", "3" and "4"; of the transmission warning indicator is activated. No substitute signal is available for the TFT sensor.

Whining noise when engaging 1st or reverse.


i had a nissan pickup that would whine in all gears except 4th...it started out with 1st then reverse then went to the rest...solution was new transmission...or rebuild cause the syncronizers or the gears them selves are being chewed up...the new transmission was cheaper then a rebuild. or take it to somewhere that will do free diag on the transmission.
