Your '01 Lincoln Town car might not shift gears because it is low on transmission fluid or because the transmission is damaged.
Odds are the clutch is in need of a adjustment or replacement.
it could be the shift linkage being that both gears over there wont work
yes it has reverse and both high and low range gears . i can get it to run in both forward and reverse but only in low range . when i shift IT into high range it is still running in low range .
If it won't shift in all the gears.
The gears in your transmission may be sticking or worn out. This would cause your transmission to not be able to shift.
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.
Sounds like a problem with the idler gear in between the reverse gear and the layshaft.
i have a 92 s-10 blazer and it has no reverse Andy ideas?. it will go in to drive and shift in to all the gears..but will no go into reverse? can u help me
if it was automatic it had a torqueflite tranny and had 3 forward gears and a reverse and if stick shift you had either a 3 speed tranny (rare) or a 4 speed.
my merucry mystique dont shift gears fast
It depends on the make and model. Some have a toe shifter like a motorcycle that is operated with the left foot. Other models have buttons on the handle bar that shifts gears electrically. Still other, newer ones are shiftless. You put it in high, low or reverse, and no shifting is required.
