my lincoln town car started with not going into park and now it wont go in reverse what is wrong and how do i fix it

You should check for codes first. it is an electronic transmission and changes gears based on information received from various sensors. If the throttle position sensor is bad, it will not shift gears correctly. mine wouldn't shift into second until 30 mph and wouldn't shift into 3rd until 55 mph.

If your car/truck is having problems shifting, it may be your transmition. You may want to get that checked out.

A more accurate description of the problem along with if its an automatic or manual transmission is needed.

Mainly because the C6 transmission only has 3 gears and no overdrive.

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.

In the car there's a small hole by the shift gears, take cover off, we used a metal nail file To press down, this now lets you shift gears.

do your brake lights work wen pressing brake . if not its the brake pedal sensor

you have to ease on the clutch, transition between releasing the clutch and applying the gas.

If the transmission won't shift out of first gear on a 1992 Buick Roadmaster, it could indicate the transmission gears are seized. It can also indicate a low fluid level.

Check the transmission fluid level. Check the linkage from the shifter to the transmission housing. If that isn't the culprit, then you'll have to tow it to the shop.

Most likely causes are low transmission fluid level, dirty transmission fluid, or clogged transmission fluid filter.
