AODE downshift problem


1995 Lincoln Town Car 130,000 miles.
My AODE is starting to misbehave. When downshifting under
light-moderate throttle from 2 to 1 (for example, going uphill at low
speed), the transmission feels like it goes into neutral and the engine
revs freely. I have a hill near my house were I can reproduce this
problem consistently. Backing off the throttle puts the tranny back in
2, and it pulls fine. I also occassionally detect some slip in 2, but
I can't be sure whether it's normal converter slip or not.

The tranny is 100% OEM. Fluid and filter have been changed at 30K
intervals, since I have owned the vehicle. Fluid level is in spec.

The car is in fantastic condition otherwise, so I want to get my AODE
back to good. Any ideas?

Rodney

It that year was on that had the electronic transmission position
selector sensor on the side of the transmission it could be it's going
bad. A relatively inexpensive fix.
