#70 of 99 93 towncar tranny prob?
Jun 19, 2010 (7:12 am)
look i got this 93 towncar and drive it fine for a couple months. then one day it started slipping like it was low on fluid. fluid was fine. i changed the filter, and fluid and well it still did the same. i could granny it up to speed and it drives fine on the highway until it gets warm and then it wont go from first or second gear at all. i replaced the tranny and the new one does the same. i was told by a local tranny shop it was the clutch inside it and it would cost my 1400 dollars to fix, what are the chances the used tranny i bought does the same thing? it smells like the fluid is burned and well wont go anywhere... please let me know. mike

It is quite possible that the used transmission has the same problem. If the fluid is burned you will probably have to replace the transmission.

Take it to a transmission shop. Let them give you the verdict. Shuddering, thumping, and grinding does not sound like a quick cheap fix.

Do you think it has to smell burned to be contaminated? Change the oil. Now!
#79 of 99 Transmission electrical control unit buzzing??
Jan 27, 2011 (3:19 am)
Not so sure if this is what it is but this is what someone told me it could be. I own a 1984 lincoln tc signature series and has 62,000 original miles,so it has been taken care of. But recently it started making these buzzing sounds that almost sound like bee's or something whenever I put it into park after an hour or so of driving. I'll stop,put it into park,it'll buzz for a while and won't stop,and then put it into drive or any other gear and it will stop. It only makes this sound after driving for a bit and only in park,and the sound is coming from under the car, around the tanny hump in the center. It's very loud and annoying. Someone please tell me if you know what it is?? And if its bad or not,and if there's any way to fix it.
