Had similar issue with my 2001 LS (same codes, no 4th or 5th gear). Also had a repair shop tell me I needed a new tranny (and would install for $3500). After some internet research, I bought a $6 spring over the net (Sonnax part #56947J-S1, "Spring, 4-3 pre-stroke valve" for transmission model 5R55N) and had a local trans shop install it, completely fixing the problem - the original spring had broken. Total cost, including new trans filter and fluid - $445.

My car is currantly at the Auto Shop. My cars gas tank got punctured. So the machanic replaced it. Now he says that it wont start. It turns though. He says we now need to replace the whole new computer system from Lincoln. Does that sound correct? Any ideas on what to do?

I find it hard to believe that a punctured tank causes the computer to fail. Unless he shorted it out while removing the fuel pump or some such thing.

Maybe the tree stump you ran over ruined some other things LOL.
How'd the tank get punctured?

I have a Lincoln LS and have tranny problems. The reverse does not work and the tranny will not shift automatically. We have to put it in 1st gear, wait for it go engage which wen it does it clunks hard. Once in 1st we can go but we still have to shift it manually. Going from 2nd to 3rd it will pause a bit longer then shifting into other gears. Once in 5th gear, it is fine but if it needs to shift down it will just fall out of gear and rev up until you manually shift it down. They say the tranny needs replaced but we don't agree. It will shift manually so here are our thought. Either the computer is sending a too high RPM or the springs or valves. Does anyone have anyother ideas? We dont want to spend the money on a new tranny when that probably is not the answer.

Love the car but have had many problems a problem with the transmission. The car has never had the transmission fluid drained/refilled I bought it used at 32K, now it has 96K. Went to the dealer to please change it due to my vehicle "kicking" between 2nd-3rd. However, when the outside temp is about 15-30 degrees, the transmission does not kick during shifting, however anywhere past
30 the symptoms come up. I was told by the dealer service dept "It cant be opened because its a sealed transmission, you would have to replace the whole thing". No dumb lights have come up yet (chk eng, transmisison, wrench or "E"). Any advise?
