I have a 1998 lincoln Continental, only 140k miles on her, front wheel drive,we had a storm like 2 months ago hard rain and thats when it started this. But when you go from park to reverse it doesnt go...


I wouldn't think transmission mechnical problem seeing how it's not shifting correctly . I would think electronic problem seeing how this trans has electronic shift control . Could be a wiring harness issue or shift solenoid , input data to the control module .
Diagnostic Strategy Troubleshooting an electronically controlled automatic transaxle is simplified by using the proven method of diagnosis. One of the most important things to remember is that there is a definite procedure to follow. DO NOT TAKE SHORT CUTS OR ASSUME THAT CRITICAL CHECKS OR ADJUSTMENTS HAVE ALREADY BEEN MADE. Follow the procedures as written to avoid missing critical components or steps.
To properly diagnose a concern, the technician should have the following publications available:
  • transaxle reference manual
  • Powertrain Control/Emissions Diagnosis Manual
  • OASIS messages
  • technical service bulletins (TSBs)
  • Electrical and Vacuum Troubleshooting Manual
Refer to the Electrical and Vacuum Troubleshooting Manual for the wire schematic and connector numbers cited in the pinpoint tests.
These publications provide the information required when diagnosing transaxle concerns.
Using the Diagnostic Flow Chart as a guide, follow the steps as indicated.

Preliminary Inspection
  • Know and understand the customer's concern.
  • Verify the concern by operating the vehicle.
  • Check fluid level and condition.
  • Check for NON-factory add-on items.
  • Check shift linkages for proper adjustment.
  • Check TSBs and OASIS messages for the concern.
Diagnostics
  • Perform on-board diagnostic procedures (KOEO, KOER).
  • Record all diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs).
  • Repair all NON-transaxle codes FIRST.
  • Repair all transaxle codes SECOND.
  • Erase all CONTINUOUS codes and attempt to repeat them.
  • Repair all continuous codes.
  • If ONLY PASS codes, proceed to Diagnosis by Symptom Chart for further information and diagnosis.
By following the diagnostic sequence, the service technician will be able to diagnose and repair the concern the first time.

Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop.

Transmission Control Switch (TCS), Transmission Control Indicator Lamp (TCIL)
The transmission control switch (TCS) is a momentary control switch. When the switch is pressed, a signal is sent to the powertrain control module (PCM) to allow automatic shifts from first through fourth gears or first through third gears only. The PCM energizes the transmission control indicator lamp (TCIL) when the switch is off. The TCIL indicates OVERDRIVE cancel mode activated (lamp on) and electronic pressure control (EPC) circuit shorted (lamp flashing) or monitored sensor failure.
Your best bet is to take your vehicle to a qualified transmission repair shop !

How to troubleshoot 2008 xterra radio issues


As a professional automotive repair technician, I would go about diagnosing your radio issue in the same mannner that I would diagnose any other electrical component in your vehicle.

The FIRST STEP in ANY vehicle diagnosis is to perform a function test and verify the customer complaint. (Check the operation of the system to determine what is functioning correctly and what is not).
Since this post has no customer complaint, we cannot get past step one.

Hyundai santa fe 2001 cluster and rear lights not working


Your problem is electrical - which you already know. I'm sorry there's no QUICK FIX for it. It requires diagnosis and trouble shooting (I imagine you've checked the fuses and bulbs?).

You've stated the problem, but have not offered additional diagnosis/troubleshooting steps/procedures undertaken. The only recourse I have is to examine the vehicle myself... which is unrealistic here. There is NO QUICK FIX for the problem you describe. It must be properly diagnosed/troubleshooted to determine the CAUSE.

What are the better extractor, exhaust systems for a 1.6 ltr manual accent and is it worth changing air filter to an aftermarket set up?


I never recommend aftermarket modifications to any vehicle. Aftermarket air induction systems - especially those with the "permanent" air filters tend to wreak havoc with Mass Airflow sensors and Intake Air Temperature Sensors. Aftermarket exhaust systems can cause problems with exhaust flow that can mess with the calibration of Oxygen Sensors. These things all lead to severe Catalytic Converter damage. When these vehicle fail to run properly, they are extremely hard, if not impossible, to properly diagnose because the troubleshooting charts for the vehicle no longer apply like they should. (It's hard enough trying to get good accurate information for the FACTORY set-up.)
These systems are set up by the vehicle manufacturer for the best performance and the best efficiency with the least amount of required maintenance.
My recommendation is that if your car does not have enough power for your needs, trade it in for a car with a bigger engine.
- Just my opinion based on 36+ years of experience. Take it as you will.

The vehicle is only 5 years old.
A rebuilt trans,computer,etc

Stop everything. Find a repair shop that works on a lot of ford vehicles.
You could go to a dealer,but I'am not seeing that work for many people.

That shop must have access to diagnostic charts for your specific vehicle.
Usually they pay big bucks for internet tech data, as well as a hot line.

You may have no idea what I am referring to.
Iam talking about a shop that specializes, in the latest vehicles,and the most technical diagnostic troubleshooting.
Those people are very hard to find, and very scarce and tallented individuals. There also, are businesses in most states, that travel to shops and work on issues, such as yours,that is far beyond a dealership to figure out.
