Hi I have a 1996 Crown Vic with 150k on it. I absolutely love the car. I bought it 2 years ago with 110k and have enjoied the past 40 k. Awesome cars.
(I love it enough to rebuild the air ride suspension
I have an intermittant issue with the trannie, though. Every once in a while going down the road at highway speeds (65 around here) it acts like it is poping out of gear. doesn't matter if I'm in OD or Drive.
Its drive me nuts.
Local trans shop wants to put in a new trans. They tell me mine is shot. But this seems like a little extreme of a repair (and a $2200 price tag has me curious) for an intermittant problem.
I had the local dealership look at it and they cleaned the EGR tube and that seemed to fix it for a while. the dealer thinks the transmission needs a flush, which i tend to agree since the milage and the prev owner said they didn't do a thing to the trans.
The car has a fresh tune up on it, and we changed the trans filter and some of the trans oil (but not all.)
Any ideas would be helpful.
