Lincoln recalls

 

For Models: Ford Taurus, Lincoln Continental, Mercury Sable

Drive Train, October 9, 1996

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Ford has recalled certain 1996 Taurus, Mercury Sable, and Lincoln Continental vehicles for a concern with the transmission park mechanism. In some vehicles, the park pawl is not rotating as necessary to enter the park gear. This could cause the vehicle to roll out of control. Dealers will inspect the park pawl shaft for rotation. Shafts with restricted rotation will have a shorter shaft installed that will not restrict rotation.

For Models: Lincoln Town Car

Drive Train, September 23, 1996

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Ford has recalled certain 1996-1997 Taurus, Windstar, Mercury Sable, and Lincoln Continental vehicles for a concern with the park mechanism in the transmission. The park pawl mechanism may not engage even though the shifter indicates the vehicle is in "Park." This could cause the vehicle to move unexpectedly and cause a crash or injury. Dealers will repair the parking pawl bracket in the transaxle.
