#226 of 229 2002 LS Transmission Problem
Mar 22, 2013 (6:36 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.

don-t let shade tree mo-chanics work on ur car period. The cooling fan works with a fluid container make sure that is within the proper level. Next air bubbles in the cooling system will cause overheating their are two bleeder valves one near the coolant bottle and the other under the air intake -remove the air intake and you will see it with the car running open both vales and let the fluid drain until a steady flow this will relieve the air in the system. once accomplished close off the valves and add fluid to the proper levels. Caution use a hose and containers to drain as the fluid will damage rubber parts and hoses.
#228 of 229 2001 Lincoln LS speed sensor trans problem
May 12, 2013 (10:38 am)
I have a 01 LS with a speed sensor issue that may be computer related. The sensor reads within spec for ohms. I checked the sensor feedback waveform with a O-scope to verify operation (VSS, ISS and TSS) All the sensors provided feedback with sinusoidal waveforms that varied with RPMs at the different spots in the trans. Still with a scanner the vehicle measures 0 MPH. The speedo in the car works fine. Still the trans is inoperative in D. No reverse or 5th. Can get other gears in manual. Can the input from the computer be dead? Any way to verify? Any help will be appreciated. I do get the proper reading from the computer for the Turbine Speed Sensor. There was no way to measure the Intermediate Speed Sensor.

I'm having the same problem with my lincoln ls. When my car starts with the high rmp I just pull over and turn off the car and on and its back to normal. I just had the solenoids changed and the car has gotten worse. I also believe it can b and electrical problem. If you find out what's the cause b4 I do please let me know.
