1990 Lincoln Town Car Transmission

\015 I drive a 1990 Lincoln Town Car with a developing transmission problem. The car was about a pint down. Over the summer I inadvertently put in about 4 tablespoons of type F steering wheel fluid instead of Mercon, if that might be a long term cause. The original defective transmission was changed at 20K. The fluid was suction flushed at 80K. It's at 115k right now, good maintenance and driving habits throughout. The problem is in the last week it is not shifting that easily into second, especially when cold. After it warms up, the car shifts into second at 30 mph OK most of the time, unless going up hill, and then stays stuck in second. It also shifts into 3rd at 38 mph most of the time. But lately, it won't shift into overdrive above 40 mph and slips and revs without acceleration. What should I do to fix this? Many thanks in advance.\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 08-08-2022
