One of your coils has gone bad..mine did the same thing and this was the problem
why does the 1991 Lincoln towncars transmission not have overdrive?Instead of going into overdrive it seems to go into neutral.But if you take it out of overdrive and leave it in drive it never goes into neutral while I'm driving.
Overdrive is the normally allowed position so you don't see the light on If you turn OFF the overdrive , the overdrive off light will light up or if there is a problem the overdrive off light will flash
if it is a consel shift, just under the shifter nob.
On my 1994 there is a button in the end of the gear shift arm. This turns off the overdrive and the dash says "Overdrive Off" above the odometer and gas mileage messages. Other than that, I don't know.
Replace all vacuum lines.
Overdrive is the normally allowed position . It won't shift into overdrive until the speed is fast enough anyway , but if you are going up and down hills and the transmission keeps downshifting you might as well turn the overdrive feature off until you are out of the hills Just adding to the answer : Also if you are towing something you want to shut off the overdrive
The radiator fan is intermittent. It works if I mess with the radiator fan connector
Either a few wires are now unconnected or you just need a new Windshield wiper motor.
Overdrive is the normally allowed position on your 1993 Lincoln Town Car . It is the " fourth gear " of your automatic transmission that allows the engine to run at a lower RPM when you are on the highway / freeway You get better gas mileage and the transmission will run cooler , so it's a good thing
Never heard of anyone doing it. It is possible t relocate the overdrive button, but not bypass it. When tarted the transmission has the overdrive on in default mode you can turn t off with the button but once you shut the car off and turn it back on the overdrive will be on again. On my B&M shifter i drilled a small hole in the side of the plastic base and mounted the button there works like a charm.
There is a button on the end of the gearshift lever...pressing it toggles the "O/D disabled" on and off.
The D with a circle will allow the transmission to shift into overdrive which reduces engine RPM"S and will conserve fuel when on a highway cruise.
Sounds like a transmission problem when going into overdrive.

I'm not a mechanic, but you should check your transmission fluid level first, then take it to someone to check the clutch either automatic or manual.
Yes I started with 18s now I have 20s with no rubbing
That indicates that the Overdrive ( for the transmission ) has been turned OFF using the transmission control switch on your shift lever ( either push the button again to turn the overdrive on or the next time the vehicle is shut off and then restarted , the normally allowed overdrive position will be enabled and the light will go off )
The 2000 Lincoln Navigator most likely suffers from the same intermittent odometer problem that has plagued many Ford vehicles (1999 - 2003 F150, F250, F350, Expedition, and Explorer). Lincoln Navigators have also been suspected of having the same problem. It would be helpful if a Navigator owner could confirm that the same problem does exist in the Navigator. iSee the following site for a discussion of the intermittent odometer problem. http://www.odometer-repair.com . I'm another owner confirming same problem. I have a 2001 Lincoln Navigator with same problem.
to my knowledge that is an after market fabrication done by the local speed shop it includes a convertible top directional rims and a economy tuned engine calibration for better gas mileage for cruising
Did you try to disconnect the battery for about a half an hour and then re-connect? May help
With the overdrive, if it was working and just quit, probably the wire in the shifter. As for the leak you will just have to trace. Maybe the coolant is running under the hose and at the lowest point is dropping where you see it. Sorry couldn't help much.
Normally on a 2006 Lincoln LS you would drive in " D5 " That allows the transmission to use all 5 gears If you are in " D4 " the transmission uses the first 4 gears and doesn't use the overdrive
Typical Town Car/Crown Vic/Grand Marquis problem. The computer which controls the tranny probably needs to be replaced.
