Customer Question
It's suddenly bucking when...

It's suddenly bucking when I'm driving fast or slow. Dirty gas? Transmission?

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the vehicle turned into a gas hog? And how does it start -- same as usual?

Starts just fine. Is not good on gas mileage. Yesterday, I felt the transmission slip once....first time car has indicated any problem. Really like this car. I totaled a Lincoln town car in Nov. Talked my Husband into this because I am a short old lady & can see better sitting up high in MKX.

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Town Car?

Ooo

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Town Car yourself? What have you tried so far?

Cant find anything thatbcausescit to start bucking. It feels like something is hitting something. Seem to occur less when going slow. Started bucking once when I increased speed

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Help. Thanks. Norma
