I have an 88 Ford Taurus L wagon and something like this is happening to me. The transmission is slipping in and out of overdrive and when it does the "check engine" like goes on briefly. I still have to have it looked at so I don't know about the code. But, my car did not just quit working right away. By the way, this problem just started last week and it does appear to be getting worse.

What happens when too much transmission fluid is put into a 2002 Lincoln LS V8?

Changing the transmission fluid in your LS should be performed by a qualified service technician. There is a fairly comprehensive procedure for servicing the transmission and it requires that the fluid be checked hot and cold. Too much fluid in your transmission will cause it to jerk when putting in and out of gear, the shifts will be choppy and it may even feel like its slipping, and finally there is an overflow valve that will cause the excess transmission fluid to leak out and onto the floor beneath the transmission. A qualified service technician will know how much fluid is enough and how to get it out.
