1st OF ALL , I HAD CHANGE THE SPRING IN THE SHIFTER MYSELF IN DEC 2014. MY TRANSMISSION FLUID CHANGE IN FEB 2015. MY LINCOLN AVIATAR WAS SHIFTING HARD & ROUGH BACK THEN, & KIND OF STOP THAT HARD SHIFTING & NOW STARTING BACK.
Lincoln Mechanic: HDGene, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago
Ok so you had an issue with the shifter, but now its basically upshifting between gears, 1-2 2-3 or 34 or hard going into reverse or drive? Its making a noise from the trans as well? Can you post the 17 digit VIN so I can verify which transmission you have, there is a choice of a couple different models for this powertrain

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
IT DOE NOT MAKE NOISE IN REVERSE, IT SOMETIME JERK INTO GEAR OR MAKE A RUBBING/GRINDING NOISE WHEN CHANGING GEARS. NO I AM GOING TO HAVE THAT ENGINE LIGHT CK OUT THIS AFTERNOON. MY 17 DIGIT VIN 5LMEU88H54ZJ45242.
Lincoln Mechanic: HDGene, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago
Ok, you have the 5R55S transmission, it has no dipstick to check the fluid level. Most common cause of a delayed and hrad engagement into reverse and some upshifting issues is the transmission solenoid body pressure control solenoid sticking and causing a delayed engagement. However if you have trans ratio codes stored such as P0732,P0733,P0734,P0735. Then there is a bigger problem with the transmission servo bores. The servo bores over times wear down and cause the transmission band applying servo piston to stick or hang and cause upshifting issues. If those codes are stored then it would require removal of the transmission and disassembly and replacement of the servo bore sleeve pins which sit in the trans case which basically equates to a transmission overhaul or replacement of the trans. Be sure the trans fluid level is full. At normal operating temp you can remove the center torx or allen bolt from the maion trans pan drain bolt. One sits inside the other. With the fluid level correct it should drip out steadily. If no fluid comes out it is low. You would need to push fluid into the inspection bolt hole with a matching threaded piece of pipe thread( A nipple) and a suction gun or lawn sprayer with mercon v trans fluid.
