The Lincoln (Updated)
After driving the Lincoln for two days with the new power steering which worked wonderfully, I was driving home at about 60mph when it downshifted into first gear. After that, it would not shift into any any higher gears. The transmission shop stated that it wasn't very common for these models of transmissions to fail, but the description of the event that he received was exactly what these transmissions do when they fail. He said that it would only be $2,800 to rebuild it. Luckily, we still have the transmission that was originally in the 92. For now, we are going the replace the cracked windshield in the Camaro until we get around to fixing the Lincoln. I'm going to miss the leather seats and air conditioning the most.
