Shuttering in mid-rear end

Asked by Nov 20, 2010 at 03:28 PM about the 2001 Lincoln Town Car Cartier

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Occasionally under no particular condition, my 2001 TC will "shutter" this is felt in the rear of the car where the hump is in the back seat. We got rid of 2 other TC for the same reason and I have found no one who can identify the problem.

drive train, probably the u joints or the rear bearings. Either way its normal wear and tear. Does it "clunk" when you put it in gear?

i have 2004 TC with similar problem. Dealer say transmission fluid needs to be changed. from what i have discovered, this problem may exist in several model years. the dealer has a machine that changes out all fluid. cost about $150. dealer says fluid will have to be changed about every 30000 miles to prevent this problem from recurring. fluid change eliminated this problem in my vehicle.
