#40 of 228 AM I ABOUT TO GET RIPPED OFF?
Aug 23, 2007 (4:07 pm)
Hello I have a 2002 Lincoln LS V8 that I have owned for two years with 65k mi. A few days ago while I was driving the check transmission came on along with the check engine light and the E on the gear shift indicator. I first wanted to check the fluid but found out after looking in the manual how hard that would be. I finaly understand how the draining and filling works and i never seen a dipstick behind the passenger front axle. I decided to take it to the quick lube and explained to the tech that I wanted to first check the fluid. We loosened the inner pan bolt and bright red fluid came dripping down.I thought at that point it was full(also no leaks). I took it to the certified transmission becauce they said free dionostics and checks. The codes were explained to me as followed P0734(gear4ratio)
P0735(gear5ratio)P0791(internal shift speed cencior A-circuit)P0795(pcsc pressure)P1270(engine speed limiter). They said internal failure needs rebuilt at the tune of $2700 and that the bands for 4th and 5th gear were probley damaged. Also they handed me a cup with brown fluid and said this was my fluid(wasnt red like the day before). I asked them about the s-pack and he told me that if I replaced that it wouldnt fix it becauce the gear ratio codes were first in the order. I told them I needed a second opinion so Im going to bring it to the dealer. I wanted your opinion in the matter and if the order of the codes mattered? The (yellow)engine light goes off with a full tank of 92 octaine. It will shift into 4th if you going slow. After the car is turned off it resets everything and you start the procces over. After the "E" comes on even the lower gears are felt when shifting but not before. Could you give me some advise?? Please. I love this car and have no warrenty.

My advice is take it to the dealer for a second opinion.
#42 of 228 Thanks for the advice but....

I was hoping for a little more info from you but thanks anyway. I did trans service over the weekend and changed filter. I got 4th gear back and now it flips back from d5 to E so thats an improvement. The dealer is so exspensive! I was debateing a rebuilt one with 1 year warrenty for $250 plus shipping. By the time all the tests and every thing its almost worth buying rebuilt? I want the cheapest way out becauce Im making $511 amonth payment with new baby. I live 3 miles from work should that hurt it driving the back roads?
#43 of 228 Is this normal when accelerate from stop
Aug 29, 2007 (7:50 pm)
I've got a used 2006 LS V8 which has around 15K on it. I got the car when it has around 5K. I noticed from the begining that when I hit the gas a little hard from stop, the first 2 gears always seems a little hesitate (whether in auto or ss mode), but once it gets into 3rd gear and the speed picks up(over 35mph) everything is fine, the accelerate is smooth, and the car response very well with the gas. It seems to me the car is lack of torque at low speed or sth else?
#44 of 228 Lincoln LS Transmission nightmare
Sep 16, 2007 (1:43 pm)
I have a 2004 Lincoln LS, 71000 miles. I started having problems when I would put my car in reverse gear, the car would jerk. At times when I would drive the car, it seemed the car was not getting any gas when I accelerated. I would have to pull over and restart the car. I took my car to Ford Lincoln Mercury and was told the solenoid pack needed to be replaced at the tune of $990. After the mechanic, took the casing off of the solenoid pack, he informed me that there was metal in the pan. He then advised that I would need a new or rebuilt transmission in the tune of $3300.
Prior to that I had $900 worth of service done due to a noise coming from the engine.
I think we all should go together and do a class action law suit. Only 3 years old, still making payments and steadily going to the shop.

Who is that we you're talking about? Got a mouse in your pocket?
In case you hadn't noticed, the LS wasn't exactly a colossal success & is no longer in production. Most of the transmissions at least worked, but beyond that, the bulk of the people who ended up driving the car couldn't tell the difference. I'm going to guess that you didn't pay exactly a fortune for this thing.

I have a 2003 Lincoln LS with 1,25000 KMs on it and im having a little issue with the transmission, 2nd to 3rd gear switch often gives me a jerk (Kick) when i drive it after few hours or in the morning, and then another kick when downshifting from 3rd to 2nd,even tho all of it goes away when engine is warmed up but still i am concerned abotu it as i bought the car used like a month ago,shud i get rid of the car? or its nothing and jus a small defect that wont cause a lott of transmission trouble?
#47 of 228 2000 Lincoln LS Transmission
Dec 11, 2007 (5:56 pm)
I bought a 2000 LS it was hit in the front but dont know why my problem would reflect this but when you take my car out of park and out into drive its like its still in neutral but you pull it back into 1st gear its fine but you still have to shift through all the gears but after it gets into overdrive its fine, it will kick into passin gear and back down into over drive again but if you come to a stop or stop light you have to pull it back inot 1st gear again??? I would like to know my problem and know how much its gonna cost? anybody have any ideas?
