I have been having the same problems from day one since I bought this car. I had a brand new transmission put in by the Lincoln place three years ago. Now my transmission is acting up again. 1. transmission shifts rough or jerky from park 2. transmission shifts rough or jerky while driving 3. gear changes take to long to complete 4. shifts occur too early, too late, too often 5.always having to replace the same parts.
