Noise Moaning Droning During Acceleration at Highway Speeds – 2000-2002 Lincoln LS

NOISE – “MOANING/DRONING” DURING LIGHT ACCELERATION AT HIGHWAY SPEEDS
LINCOLN: 2000-2002 LS

 

Some vehicles may exhibit a “moaning/droning” noise during light accelerations with the transmission in 5th gear at highway speeds (100-130 km/h (60-65 mph) for V6 vehicles or 80-90 km/h (50-55 mph) for V8 vehicles).

This noise will disappear if the transmission is shifted to 4th gear or when lifting the throttle.

MERCURY: 1997-1999 GRAND MARQUIS, MOUNTAINEER

 

A perceived 2-3 delayed upshift, primarily when the transmission is cold, may be evident on some vehicles.

The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) strategy is designed to delay shifts in some vehicles when Transmission Fluid Temperature (TFT) is below approximately 21°C (70°F) for faster heater warmup.

The 2-3 shift may be delayed approximately 14-24 km/h (9-15 mph) when compared to the shift speed charts listed in the appropriate Service or Workshop Manual.
