I have had a lot of work done to the Lincoln lately. One of the things that was done was a lower mile(20K) rebuild out of a newer Crown Vic was put in due to the fact that my installer thought the fluid in my original was contaminated with clutch material. It indeed was nasty looking.
I agreed to the newer tranny seeing that a 3800 rpm stall converter and JMOD was going to compliment this tranny.
Here's my situation:
At around 30-35 mph when the car should shift into 3rd, rather it slips into neutral. Mind you this is ONLY on lighter throttle. I can either let off the gas when this happens, rpms will drop and the gear will engage, or else, I can throttle hard and "punch through" the condition. The fluid level is fine and color is normal.
Am I dealing with a sensor like the MLP here or am I dealing with a shadetree installer that sold me a bunk tranny?
