    I'm not sure. But before I started it the dipstick showed a white and creamy color. After running for a few minutes it looked normal and doesn't smell burnt.

Try replacing the transmission filter and the trannie fluid. Mine would only go in reverse, and now it drives pretty well. This year has a screw on filter. Hope this helps

SOURCE: automatic transmission wont catch into any gear

You sould have been moore frequent on your transmission fluid changes, and you shouldn't have taken it to Jiffy Lube either. Your best bet is to drain and fill the trans fluid run it shift gears. Drain and fill again. Do this 3 times. Yeah the transmission fluid is expensive. on the last drain and fill you want to get a bottle of LUBE GUARD from NAPA or who ever sells it. put the whole 10oz bottle in. Shift Rev, 1, 2, 3, D. Neutral Rev D. If that don't work then you have bad seals.

SOURCE: 1995 crown vic gear problems/gear shift wont lock

most likely the shift tube bushings are bad- you may have also lost a few screws in the shift tube or they could just be loose. you have to pull the steernig column down to inspect/repair it.

Ford crown victoria 99 won't go forward goes in reverse


You have a 4r70w transmission and more than likely a forward drum failure has occurred, seeing as reverse still works fine and no forward engagement. This is not an electrical problem, it is a hard part failure and the transmission will need to be disassembled to repair it. Forward drum failures are one of the more common failures in these transmissions. 4r70w no forward gears only reverse help needed Ford Truck Enthusiasts...

I would but imagine that since it goes into reverse, the shift lever is connected to the transmission. Makes sense. But won't go into forward gears with the selector/shift lever. Your either very low on trans fluid or you've burned the clutch packs out from being low on trans fluid. Only makes sense.

I have 1992 ford crown victoria that doesn't shift into reverse most especially when it's warm. i've had fluid changed. fluid is reddish now. is there an adjustment? sometimes seems like i can mess with...


Fluid color don't matter. Your cable or shifting linkage may have slipped or is slipping. #1 Hold brake pedal down and move shift lever very slow around the reverse indicator. When reverse activates note were indicator is located. #2 Test the other gear indicators at the proper speeds(MPH). No problems with #2-linkage problem. Problem with both-go get a six pack. Good Luck.

Why would my 1992 crown vic operate in reverse and only if floored will it engage in drive


check your fluid lever first, if it is not low then you either have an issue with either the mlps (manual lever position switch) which is located on the side of the transmission, or the trans itself is probably in need of an overhaul. If it seems like it just happened all of a sudden, check fluid first-on level ground, with the engine warm and the trans having just been driven or loaded. If you haven't done it yet, get the trans serviced and use Mercon V fluid, it should be done every 60,000 miles.

How can a kickdown cable be hooked up wrong if its connected to the tranny and the throttle body on a 1992 crown victoria


More likely it is not adjusted properly Kickdown cables are used to control fluid flow in the transmission so they shift correctly If adjusted to tight or to loose it will cause the transmission to not change gears properly or not at all
