our 1990 Lincoln town car has had a trans whine for about 6 months now, and it whines in all gears, even in Park and neutral. It goes away slightly in 3rd gear and in overdrive, you can faintly hear it. The fluid is fine and at the full mark, and the transmission seems like its working fine, but it sometimes takes 5 or more seconds for it to shift into drive or reverse. When it rains, the whine disappears completely and comes back after the rain stops. Usually the whine slowly goes away as the engine warms up, but its still there and when accelerating in Reverse, 1st, and 2nd, you can hear it and in 3rd and overdrive, the whine isn't there at all. In park and neutral, the whine is there, but its not as loud as it is when the engine first starts

cover was off the box when i went to grab it it touched something , sparked and car died.. now car will not start, replaced power relay, does same thig, it will turn over just not start..?????
my car dose not start
I am smelling a weird smell, kind of sweet from the vents. Also my lights will not shit off causing the battery to for. Of I play with the a/c switch and the lights and the steering wheel, the digital dash flickers.
It happens as soon as u go to put it in under thevsteering wheel...im sure it has to be something grounding out.....
The window will stop after I start rolling down. I have to roll back up then down to set it to go all the way.
HOW TO FIX A DRIVE SHAFT ON A 1988 LINCOLN TOWN CAR I NEED TO GET IT OUT TO PUT BAWLBERINGS SHOW ME HOW PLEASE
Does my car have front air bags
I recently parked my towncar because I got another vehicle. I changed the fuel filter [1st one ive changed in 6 years] and it ran the same as usual for a month. after it sat for a week I started it to let it run for a few mins and it died within 5-10 mins. it will not start again. I checked the fuel fuses and relays I disconnected when replacing the filter and their plugged in good. the fuel pump makes the normal sound when it comes on when I turn the key once before starting. it seems its not getting fuel or spark. thanks in advance
engine misses at idle and more when ac is on
I actually have a 1989 model year. The instructions on the fan shroud says disconnect the spout connector, set timing, then re-connect it, I can't and don't know where to find the connector to properly time engine.
while driving the car the car won't shift into gear
