:( :arrow: :?: :!: Hi, I have a 1988 Lincoln Towncar that I seem to
be having transmission problems with. When I start up and start going
it will not go into first gear, it just makes that whining sound.
Then after about 10 minutes of driving 20 to 25 mph, it kicks into the
next gear. In order to get it to go into third, which is about as
high as I can get it, 40- 45mph, I have to put it into the second
drive gear. The engine gets really hot fast. Someone told me it was
not the transmission, but something in the throttle body, and they
replaced whatever it was with little pieces that look like rubber
washerts. They said the one or ones on there were dry rotten and that
was causing my problems. Please someone help me out!!!! :?
