Strange, but had "Check Transmission" light appear while driving down highway. No codes, however, appeared in the computer after restarting it. The next day it acted like it was misfiring and the "Check Engine" light came on. It showed trouble code for number 8 cylinder misfiring. After changing the coil that attaches to the spark plug, it has run like a champion. I figured that the misfiring due to the bad coil caused the transmission to act funny, and hence, the "Check Transmission" light to pop up. Why it didn't show a code at first is anyone's guess.

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.

Make sure you have brake lights.This is were the shifter solenoid gets it's signal from to get it out of gear.
One thing you can try is turn the igntion switch towards the run postion stopping just short of activating the electronics.Then try and move shifter to neutral then you can start it and out it into gear so you can drive it to get it fixed.

How often to change tranmission fluid on a 2002 lincoln ls


Hi Gary,

There is a small dilema here. The Owner's Manual for your Lincoln says to refer to the Maintenance schedule to find the proper interval for replacing your transmission fluid. Here is where the problem arises: The Maintenance schedule published for your vehicle says to replace the transmission fluid at 30,000 mile intervals for several transmission models. Then it "excepts" the models that are not lsted by transmission model number in the preceeding text - yours is not listed.

Then, when I go to the service manual and search by your vehicle (2000 Lincoln LS) it says to replace the transmission fluid at 30,000 mile intervals without any exceptions.

Here is what I recommend to my customers:

CHECK the fluid every 30,000 miles and REPLACE the fluid and filter every 60,000 miles. I have found that this works for almost every make and model out there. I have several customers with over 300,000 miles on their cars that have never had transmission overhauls.

For free PDF version downloads of both the Owner's Manual and the Maintenance Schedule (3rd printing) for your vehicle, click the links below.

97 lincoln continental auto trans wont shift out of first gear


Most common causes of your problem are the following:
  1. Low transmission fluid
  2. Old/brown transmission fluid
  3. Broken transmission line (any pools of trans fluid on the ground?)
  4. Broken transmission vacuum line
  5. Transmission needs adjustment
  6. Transmission itself needs repair
The first 3 can be checked visually, the last 3 most likely need a mechanic to verify.

1992 Lincoln Continental engine/gasket problem


These vehicles are historic for head gasket problems. Ford had issued a recall because there where so many problems. The new head gasket is a different material than the original. Cost to replace varies by shop and geographic location, plan on around 1100 bucks.
