My Daughter and Son-in Law have just bought a 89 Town Car, some kind of OD tranny behind a 5.0. My question is what kind of tranny is it? The problems are as follows, doesnt want to shift over half the time, and last night they came home about 20 mph in 1st. I moved it today and it will burn 'em in reverse or 1st, but I did not test drive it on the road. I was wondering could it be the TV cable? is there any way to adjust it? Are there any external adjustments? I think I have seen this tranny before, maybe it's a AOT?

It is an AOD. It could possibly be the TV cable. Check to see if the cable grommet in the TBI linkage is good. They have a tendency to wear out. Unless you have adjusted an AOD tv cable before I wouldn't attempt it. The are very sensitive to adjustment. THe right way to adjust them requires a gauge in the TV tap on the side of the case. What does the fluid look like? Is there any friction on the stick?
