Remanufactured Lincoln Town Car Transmissions 


The Lincoln Town Car is the final vestige of the traditional American land yacht. It’s big, comfortable and extremely reliable. However, transmission problems with the 4R75E or 4R70W transmission can actually leave this cruise ship moored at the dock. So let’s see if installing a remanufactured Lincoln Town Car transmission can fix your problems and save you some time and money in the long run. 


Common Lincoln Town Car Transmission Problems  


Slipping, Erratic Shifting, Harsh Forward or Reverse Gear Engagement: Some of the most common Lincoln Town Car transmission problems are slipping between gears, erratic up or down shifts, or a hard slam when the 4R75E / 4R70W transmission engages Drive or Reverse. There are a number of design flaws in this transmission, and any one of them could be causing these symptoms. 


Another common problem is overheating. This happens when the moving parts inside the transmission are creating more friction heat than the ATF can remove. The most common cause of this condition is towing heavy loads, driving in stop/go traffic, or on mountain roads where the transmission has to shift a lot. 


TCC Application in 2nd Gear – 4R75E Transmission  

2005 – 2006 Lincoln Town Car  

Problem – A lack of power after the 1-2 shift can be caused by an un-commanded torque converter clutch application / TCC apply. The P0742 and/or P1742 DTCs may also be stored. 

Solution  The #7 check ball inside of the valve body may have worn down to an incorrect size, allowing the torque converter clutch to apply after the 1-2 shift. Replacement of this check ball may solve the problem. 


Slipping in All Forward Gears – 4R75E Transmission  

Problem – Many 2005 – 2006 Ford vehicles equipped with the 4R75E transmission, may experience excessive slipping in all forward gears. Metal shavings may also be present in the transmission fluid. 

Solution  Replace forward clutch drum and update ECU with program 06B06 


How to Solve Lincoln Town Car Transmission Problems 


Solution A: Buy a Used Lincoln Town Car Transmission  

Going to the local junkyard and picking up a used Lincoln Town Car transmission might seem like the cheapest and fastest option. But you need to consider the fact that you don’t know what the actual shape of the internal components are. It could very well be on the verge of transmission problems of its own, which would leave you in the exact same predicament that you’re in now. And that 30 – 90 day junkyard warranty probably won’t cover labor charges to install the replacement transmission if something goes wrong. 


Solution B: Buy a Rebuilt Lincoln Town Car Transmission 

Getting a rebuilt Lincoln Town Car transmission would probably seem like a better idea. However, a lot of mechanics and transmission shops will only rebuild your Lincoln Town Car transmission back to its original factory specifications. Which means that all of those factory design flaws are still going to be inplay. And that rebuilt transmission warranty might only be good at certain shops, which could do you no good if you have transmission problems while you’re traveling. 


Solution C: Buy a Remanufactured Lincoln Town Car Transmission 

 If you want to get the most service life out of your little luxury SUV as possible, then you really should consider a remanufactured Lincoln Town Car transmission from Street Smart Transmission. Each one is completely disassembled and re-remanufactured, so nothing is left to chance. Theyre also modified to correct the factory design flaws, which will greatly extend the service life. Plus, you get a 3-Year/Unlimited Mile Nationwide Warranty. This will cover parts and labor charges at any licensed repair shop in the Continental United States, giving you a lot more flexibility and coverage.
