1998 Lincoln Continental V8 Front Wheel Drive Automatic 103,000 miles
I have the same exact issue that another member has reported:
1998 Lincoln Continental, will not shift out of first gear, it is not locked in first. On occasion the Check Transmission alert will come on the display, and the car will work fine until it hits about 40 mph, then its rpm' s want to shoot up for the car to drive any faster. The alert goes away when this happens. Check Steering Assist will come up and then Check Ride Control will pop up. Steering and Ride Control work perfectly fine when these errors come up and work fine all the time. My doors will not auto lock over 5 mph like it used to, and the feature is still activated on the display menu. Also my cruise control does not work. It still drives, just my car will be damaged at high way speeds, I push close to 6,000 rpm' s just to reach 45 mph, I did get the transmission fluid flushed (was a suspect at first sight, and was almost burnt anyways).
