Question about 1991 Lincoln Continental

Gear shift indicator breaks

There have been many repairs to the gear shift indicator on our 92 Lincoln but it always breaks again usually with a few weeks and always within a few months. It was several years old when this started.

    I'll take this to our current repairman and see if that is what they have been doing. I hope that I can come back to the site and give you a rating then. Thanks for your reply!

What causes the hold indicator to go on. When I shift to drive 3 the hold button comes on and the gear doesn't Shift. This morning I cleaned the air filter sensor and it went off, it shifted to 4th gear...


If I'm correct-- you asked yesterday & a woman gave you
a great answer about the hold feature on the dash

Now I will tell you that all along -- I felt you had a transmission
problem & most likely an internal one & a very very costly repair
coming

All anyone can do on this site is guess at these questions

You I assume have continued to use the vehicle & may very well
have ruined not only the trans, but any chance for a simple less
expensive repair (I did once own a trans shop) Very Very few
do not come out & get rebuilt, once they act up & continue to drive it

Shift indicator not working correctly


This is a common concern on explorer, shift indicator cable breaks.if you're the diy type this is a pretty easy repair. Remove steering column cover top and bottom, and instrument bezel.you'll see shifter indicator coming out of bottom of instrument cluster and cable wrapped around steering column, attached to the shifter.you'll have to remove 4 screws for cluster,7mm, tilt the bottom of the cluster and look where indicator is attached, usually 2 7 mm bolts or clips, remove and replace indicator...if the steering column was lowered without taking off indicator cable it would break cable, or could be band that wraps around column that's loose or broken..either way cheap fix..

1992 Lincoln Town car transmission shifter loose and not shifting gears. It is NOT transmission but a shift lever linkage problem. How do I get to it in the column?


Ive done it a few times in the 90's but cant remember now but go grab a Haynes repair manual from your local parts store it will help with almost all repairs.

I have a 2001 V8 Lincoln LS and have tranny problems. The reverse does not work and the transmission will not shift automatically. If I put it in any gear on the auto side, I can hear it engage but when I...


If you drive it a few days like that ,you will have a $3000 repair bill

instead of a $332.20 Solenoid Trans Pack, I put in my 2004

Any time you have, any trans issues,you stop driving it immediately
You never drive again, until diagnosed and repaired

I used to own a trans repair shop.

You will have to add labor to yours.

IT IS HARD TO SAY WHAT THE PROBLEM IS, 1ST YOU REPAIR ANY SHIFT LIKAGE ISSUES THEN YOU MOVE ON TO THE TRANS IF THE PROBLEM STILL ISN'T CURED, THE 92 LINKAGE WILL NOT WORK.
