    E on dash. Transmission stuck in a high gear

    I actually cut a ratcheting combination wrench down to be able to get the transmission connector on and off a little easier. It's still a challenge, but a lot quicker than fighting with a ¼" ratchet. These transmissions are notorious for several fatal weakness and I will disagree that 157k is...

    Rebuilt or New Transmission

    I'll disagree and say find a company that specializes in remanufacturing the 5R55 to address the weaknesses. Rockauto used to have them, but the last time I checked that was no longer the case. Most local shops, even the ones that claim to be 5R55 specialists, are going to leave something to be...

    Best selling venue in 2021

    Facebook marketplace. I've sold two cars on there in the last year, both in a day. The used car market is hot right now so you should be able to start at the higher side of pricing and still sell quickly. Just be prepared for the typical nonsense, like getting low offers without any dialog. I...

    Should I be worried about a rebuild of the transmission soon?

    I got a remanufactured 5R55 about half a dozen years ago from Home - The Transmission Authority through RockAuto. They don't just rebuild the transmission with the same weaknesses, they address them all so that it is stronger and more reliable than stock. It was by far the most cost effective...

    Transmission. Q and A

    You can get a quality remanufactured transmission ready to bolt up and install for ~$1600. Is it worth twice that amount to have a shop do it questionably?

    Best of.....Lincoln LS Enthusiasts (Pictures)

    I am on the same page. This stuff is why I am quickly drifting away from both sites. Why is this any better than the bashing that is done on Facebook? Schmidt, you really should investigate a productive hobby...I mean that honestly.

    Paint Booster Upgrades?

    1) "Pussy wet..." is a moronic expression that needs to go away. 2) That LS Facebook group is becoming inundated with mooks that use phrases like "pussy wet." There is a guy on there right now selling an intake and used that to describe the condition of the filter. :rolleyes: 3) You can get...

    Get a remanufactured one from RockAuto for ~$1600. It comes complete, including the torque converter and adapter plate. Cheaper than any rebuilder I have come across and comes with a great warranty.

    Anyone know what 15" wheels will fit the LS?

    I know you are talking about the rears, but just in case you are considering all four corners...the front calipers barely clear stock 16" wheels.
