Hello, I'm Chris.
I will do my best to answer your question fast and accurate using the info you have provided. Thanks for visiting Just Answer.

 

First off I need to know what the year make and model is?

Is the converter clutch not engaging at all?

Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 2 years ago.

I still need to know the year make and model vehicle I am going to be helping you with?

 

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
1999 LINCOLN CONTINENTAL 32V 4.6L V8
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 2 years ago.

You actually need to download and follow this TSB. I would go with what Ford says and not the 2 prior suggestions of most likely. You for sure have to remove the transaxle and for sure have to replace the torque converter, then from there the rest of the checks you need to perform are in the TSB. Replacing the solenoid or the clutches through out is not going to fix this concern.

 

Thanks for pressing accept. Please reply and let me know if this is what you needed, as well if its not.
