Transmission model is AX4N.The reason that the car/trans only acts up after long drives is the heat.As metal components heat up,tolerances and clearances that were marginal or borderline before with moderate heat,become excessive clearances when really hot.More than likely there are internal transmission components with excessive wear.Many problematic areas inside the AX4N trans is the pump,where the oil pump driveshaft bearing wears out,the seal is torn,and hydraulic pressure falls off,common failure point in these units.The other areas are typical to all automatic transmissions,the clutch packs and bands wear and lose clearance.as well as some of the bushings inside the unit.I just rebuilt recently a trans exactly identical to your car,V8...4.6Ltr Lincoln,and it had minimal damage inside,but enough to throw the check engine light on with a Torque Convertor Clutch trouble code.The TCC was slipping excessively,and the vehicle computer recognized this,and illuminated the CEL.Chances are good that the damage inside your trans will be minimal,but now is the time to consider rebuilding it and restoring all the hydraulic circuits integrity,and resetting all the clutch pack and band clearances with new clutches,steels,and bands.A remanufactured torque convertor should also be installed along with rebuilding the trans.Be careful as to who does the work on the trans should you decide to rebuild it,as some people's definition of a rebuild doesn't quite qualify as anything more than a patch/repair job.A complete rebuild consists of tearing the trans completely down,loading it into a parts cleaner,and thoroughly cleaning it.From this point,the rebuild begins,including a banner overhaul kit,new steels,bands,seals,thrust washers as required,Electronic Pressure Control solenoid,all new bushings,set clutch pack clearances to factory specifications,along with setting unit endplay,and a remanufactured torque convertor.Good luck.

there are two fuse boxes.
the main one is on the drivers side near the pedals(i believe) and the other one is under the hood..
the heater fuse should be in the primary on...

SOURCE: gear shift stuck on park
hi do you hear a click sound from the gear lever area when you press the brake pedal if not first of all check under the dashboard around the brake pedal se if the brake switch has fallen out if all looks ok then if you look at the top of your gear selecter you should see a small plastic screw remove it with a flat screw driver put you car key in the hole and push down on the key you should be able to then remove your gear selecta from the park position hope this helps

the vehicle module sees a problem and without a scanner to retrieve the proper codes, it will be hard to correctly diag your problem....best to have a dealer/shop check that first.... GL

Is the fluid full enough? there should be a dipstick to tell where the level should be. Also is the belt tight enough? Wires loose?
