#217 of 228 06 LS Transmision Shift Pack
Mar 29, 2012 (9:20 am)
Had to have the transmissions shift solenoids replaced at 69000 miles (on a well maintained vehicle) to correct a very hard shift from 1st to 2nd. It appears as if this is not an uncommon problem with this transmission and a very costly unexpected repair. Ford Motor Co indicated there is no monetary assistance offered for this problem as there is no recall.
The tranny does shift effortlessly after the repair.
Does anyone know of a recall for this problem or a way to have the bill reduced?

May I ask how much was the repair and where are you located? I have similar shifting issues and would like some insight.

I have a 2005 Lincoln LS. How much did it cost you to replace the solenoid pack and what were the symtoms leading up to your trans problem.

I have a lincoln ls 2004 v6 car. The engine stalled twice when I stopped quickly at a red light signal. I had to push to P and restart the engine once. The engine light is not on and I did not feel it is the misfire problem. Another thing, each time I change from D to R, I can feel my car a little shake (if I do it slowly, the car don't shake). And sometimes when I push the gas a lot when the signal turns green I heard a big noise which sounds like the gear is not matched. I drove to the lincoln dealer to check the engine problem and they took 3 days and they they can't find any problem about the engine but they found the transmission problem. They performed electronic tranmission diagnosis and said EEC test KOEO pass CONT PASS KOER pass. They told me : the transmission fluid level OK and fluid is varnished. They also do a road test and told me: transmission neutralizes AHEN coming to a stop and shifts erratic also makes whning noise on acceleration from torque converter. They suggest me to change the transmission which will cost 3,700 $. I don't want to pay that so I came here to ask for help. This is my first car and I like it.

I have a 2003 LS V6 which I got in 2004 that has started shifting hard in all gears. I have 79,150 miles on it. No lights are on I took it to a transmission shop and they said that there is nothing wrong with my transmission and that it must be a computer problem. They recommended that I see a electrical person. In March of this year it was linking oil so I spent $1300.00 dollars with that. I won't go into what I spent last year and the year before smh. But I think I am done spending my money.

I would also like to know the cost. I don't drive my car for fear of doing some major damage.

#226 of 228 2002 LS Transmission Problem
Mar 22, 2013 (7:36 am)
I have a problem that maybe someone can give me some advice. My daughter recently purchased a nice 2002 LS with about 100K on the engine and transmission. The transmission light will come on after you run the car for a little while and you have high RPM (3000+) at higher speeds. It is as if the car will not shift into the higher gears. This does not happen all the time and the shifting is smooth when the car operates normally. I have had it in for repairs my local transmission shop. The initial diagnostic tests showed that one or more of the solenoids were bad and they have been replaced. It was then thought the electrical harness was bad and a new (used) one was purchased and installed. Then a new module for the computer (not sure what this is) was installed. The transmission mechanics are convinced this is still an electrical and not mechanical problem, but they are now scratching their heads as to what it could be???? I am already into this repair for $1,300 and I still have the original problem. Anyone have any ideas (other than going to another transmission shop - already under consideration). Thanks.
