Having problems with your 2006 Lincoln Zephyr ?
Have 2006 lincoln zephyr and i have some transmission slippage problems. on occasion when i put the car into drive it will not grab for a few seconds and then when it does it bangs into gear and sometimes when im slowing down it bangs into 2nd and 1st gear and sometimes i get slippage when accelerating from stand still. i took it in for servicing and was told that the transmission mount was broke and they welded the mounts and it was fixed but problem remains. does anyone know what the problem m
I own a 2006 Zephyr with similar issues. My dealer reset the transmission which briefly helped but the problem quickly came back. My son is a certified Master Mechanic with Ford but in business for himself. He tested the car and told me the valve body was bad, printed out the TSB's (technical service bulletins) issued by Ford for the 2006 Zephyr, 2007-08 MKZ's and other models equpped with an Aisin transmission. My car was a certified Preowned vehicle and I have the ESP Premium coverage for it. I took the car back to the dealer, who is replacing the valve body, it's being covered by the warranty and the $100.00 deductible is being waived because the valve body should have been replaced the 1st time. The TSB states that if there are no "codes" showing, the car has over 20,000 miles, the valve body should be replaced. It's an expensive repair but Ford is aware of the problem. Contact your dealer, let them know you are aware of the TSB's issued for the car, especially if you have the ESP protection. If not for my son I wouldn't have known. If you need any further info, contact me, I'll be glad to help you. My car has 62,000 miles, I love it and I'm sure glad I found the problem before I hit the 75,000 limit for the warranty.
