This morning I was driving my 02 lincoln LS8 and it was doing ok, I made a stop to get gas and then started back down the road my car started acting up and wouldn't shift. I looked down and the it said "E" and in the info ctr it said ck transmission. I pulled over, shut the engine off and let it set for about 1 minute, then i dropped it manually into 1st and then shifted it up to D5, when i babied it it would go back to normal, when i got relaxed and started driving again normally it blinked back into the "E" mode. As long as I babied it I could drive it, but if I tried to drive it normally it would do the "E" mode. What is going on and how or what do I do. NOW I when I say drive normally,I am NOT driving crazy, but I do drive around 70-75 on the interstate, but I don't drive my car hard, just normal. I should mention that this morning is the coldest morning that we've had in probably 5 years, I don't know if that has anything to do with it, but I need to know what to do. Thanks
Getting the following codes on my 2004 LS. I think emission codes were there before - Ford dealer said problem with catalytic converter and suggested not bothering with. As for the others I am seeking a solution. Symptoms are waning power and also does really jerk into reverse gear. Also, "E" symbol just came up. Any ideas on what the problem might be based on the codes? Could it be just be an electrical/sensor problem or something? Thank you!

I have a Lincoln LS and have tranny problems. The reverse does not work and the tranny will not shift automatically. We have to put it in 1st gear, wait for it go engage which wen it does it clunks hard. Once in 1st we can go but we still have to shift it manually. Going from 2nd to 3rd it will pause a bit longer then shifting into other gears. Once in 5th gear, it is fine but if it needs to shift down it will just fall out of gear and rev up until you manually shift it down. They say the tranny needs replaced but we don't agree. It will shift manually so here are our thought. Either the computer is sending a too high RPM or the springs or valves. Does anyone have anyother ideas? We dont want to spend the money on a new tranny when that probably is not the answerdid you ever find out what was wrong I'm having the exact same problem Pls help???
