    Default 2004 Krystal Lincoln towncar 120" stretch drivetrain

    I have problems with 2 things, the carrier barrings are shot, anyone know where to buy the drive train is hitting metal going down the road? They look aftermarket but I'm unsure. Also, the transmission some reason when I'm driving down the road after its warm say if I push on brakes to go around turn and push on gas it hisitates and jerks back into gear. Then if I sit on hill it will start to roll like a manual transmission then if I push on gas it will jump into and jerk to gear.. It shifts perfect long as I stay on pedal.super crazy not sure what to do and if anyone has had this happen. It's 2004 towncar with 93,xxx miles40r70w

    I'm not sure about the carrier bearings I would recommend removing the drive shaft and bring it to a driveline shop they will be able to rebuild the driveshaft and baLance it for you. As far as your shifting problem is concerned with 93000 miles on it I would recommend lowering the transmission pan see if there's any metal in the pan clean it out replace the filter and flush the fluid make sure to use an anti shudder additive and then clean the throttle body, clear all codes in the computer reset the Keep Alive memory and drive it and see how it goes. good luck I hope this helps.

    Mike, it's not arrogant. Not trying to be an axxhole.

    With a location, I can do a quick Google search in his area for drive line specialists & give the guy a phone number for someone. If this newbie had done a quick search on this forum, he would have found several discussions about his problem.

    FWIW, I've got 2 Krystals and have recently done 1 drive line rebuild.

    The local Ford dealer should be able to help with the carrier bearings in the rear diff. about $150-200 in parts and 3-4 hours labor.

    A more common failure that makes the same noise is the axle bearings,

    As far as the trans concern goes, the #7 check ball in the valve body has degraded and may be leaking or stuck/wedged itself in the spacer plate causing the TCC to stay appied. FoMoCo has released a TSB on this issue. This is *NOT* a major repair. about $100 in parts, 2-3 hour labor at the most.

    Hope this helps.
