Maybe somebody can help me... My car has 68k miles and the other day at highway speed (70) she just bogged down and "e" light came on I got off the highway and shut it down.After 15 mins or so I fired it up and she drove fine... haven't had the problem since.. Also strange noise 60mph that seems to go away when you turn the wheel to the left..gets bad when turn to right...

I don't think the solenoid has anything to do with your overheating issue. My Lincoln did the same thing for quite some time and i discovered that it was low on coolant, and the area between the transmission cooler and radiator was filled with dead grass and leaves. I cleaned out the area, and topped off my coolant and haven't had that issue since. I hope that gives you an idea of what to look at

Well thank you... but we replaced the colant bottle about a year ago. it was cracked and leaking. it is fine now, i check all fluids regularly in both of my cars.
In response to the other folks who also responded- I went to autozone for the free diagnostic. they "couldnt give me the code" but told me a pressure solenoid popped up, which could be eg or transmission.
It did start shifting a lil bit funky- and when it does that, it will start to warm up the slightest bit.
then about a week ago, i hear beep and look at dash to see the gear im in on dashboard is "E" and "check Transmission" light is also on, and she is overheating.. i pulled over, shut off, started up (no transmission messages now) drove it home and have been driving my winter car since... time to follow the best advice and just hit up the dealership...

My buddy has a 2002 Lincoln LS. He says after he washes it, the transmission light comes on and the car starts to shake. Anybody have any ideas? It does not have the "E" in the gear indication (like some other problems), he had just started right after power washing it, it wasn't overheating at the time, and he didn't smell anything burning. The car shook from the time he started it until he shut it off.
Any advice would be awesome, thanks!
#127 of 229 Help w/unknown transmission code

If anyone can point me in the right direction I'd forever be in your debt.
The other day while in cruise control traveling at 70mph, my 2003 Lincoln LS would not accelerate. I received a ETC engine shutdown safe mode (something of that nature) error code. I pulled to the side of the road, turned my car off then back on and continue on my way.
The next day I took my vehicle to the dealership (not Lincoln) explained what happened. Upon diagnosis, he pulled two error codes. P2107 and P2110 and advised that I take it to a local transmission shop. I received a phone call today from the transmission shop where as I was told by the tech they he could not figure out what the codes meant. He then advised that I take it to the Lincoln dealership. Can anyone give me an insight as to what is really going on with my vehicle???? BEFORE I take it to the Lincoln Dealership.
Any advice is greatly appreciated, thanks.

Find a new dealer. Those are ETC codes (electronic throttle control). They have nothing to do with the transmission.

Thank you so much for the information..
Now I don't feel stupid, I explained that I thought it was something electrical because the vehicle did not hesitate but simply would not accelerate. I was told that it had to be the transmission because of the codes.
Is this something that can be easily fixed? Expensive to fix?
I want to have enough information to (attempt) have a decent conversation with the tech when I take my vehicle to the dealership.

My guess would be a bad sensor or wire but that's just a guess.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Was reading your post while looking for information myself. I had the same problem several times with my 2002 LS and it was the coils on the spark plugs. They changed them at the dealership and the problem stopped. I could try to floorboard the car and it wouldn't got any faster than 30mph. I hopped my way to the dealer after they checked it and found nothing. I had left the dealership and gottne half way home when it started all over again. They told me not to stop the car when I got to the dealership, which I did. When they checked it on the computer it turned out to be the power packs on the plugs. They changed three of them, which I don't think it had that many bad personally. But none the less it works fine now.
