TV Valve on Lincoln Mark 7

What sounds better: a $4 expense that is easy to fix or a very painful $1500 expense? If you ignore a dry rotted or missing throttle valve (TV) bushing
you are almost guaranteed to have the $1500 expense of rebuilding your AOD transmission. The factory plastic bushing Ford installs at the factory will fail after 10+ years of heat, no longer keeping the TV cable firmly attached to the throttle of your 5.0L motor. When this happens, your AOD will suffer from "low blood pressure" and die a quick and expensive death.
Below are the affected vehicles:
