Transmission shift

Asked by Aug 30, 2016 at 04:16 AM about the 1996 Lincoln Mark VIII 2 Dr LSC Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a96 mark8 LSC WITH
only78,120miles on it that I
resently bought from a guy
that got it from an estate sale
the guy who owned it had
pasted away and I think it sat
awile ! It seems to run really
good but when iam driving it
say on the highway and go to
punch it,it ack's like it takes a
deep breath before it kick's in
and then it takes of like crazy,
but when it goes to shift up
after that it don't seem like
it's licking in to say second or
drive or overdrive as fast as it
should! I have a not her one
that just flat out goes like
crazy great from start to
finish without any problem at
all! Someone told me that it
might be something to do
with a spring and piston in it
that break and there is some
update you have to do to
some of these transmission's
and also drilling a hole in
there to! Also I dont seem to
get as good enough gas
millage as I did in the other
one I got that has front end
damage to it now! Also does
the ecm have anything to do
with the transmission too!
Pleas help any and all would
be great! Thank you George

You could try some Lucas oil treatment in the transmission. Also scanner hooked up to be sure you don't have any engine codes that could indicate a problem.

Could be the ecm those trans are electric shift.

You don't mean like that slick50 motor treatment do you I bought some of that to use in my engine when i got the oil changed last week but my manual for the car said not to put any kind of additives in it! Do you think its ok to use it in there!slick500weekadditive's!
