1997 Lincoln Town Car. As I am driving it shifts into 1 and 2 fine but will not go into 3rd when it tries to switch to 3rd it goes into a neutral state and just revs unless I jam the gas pedal then it kicks back into second unless I let it drop by 15 mph and it goes back into 2nd. I'm thinking it is the pcm because when I turn od off it is fine of course, no 3rd and 4th though. Love your YouTube channel by the way

forgot to mention no codes come up

odds are transmission needs rebuilding, but do have a pro check shift solenoids and pray one is going out.

Seriously ok thank you.

Hopefully it is a shift solenoid especially the car only has 87000 miles
