Hi there. It is possible that your Lincoln has entered a "limp mode"; which is when a problem is found in the transmission by a sensor. Essentially, it locks your vehicle in a low gear and restricts the speed, so you can safely drive to a dealership for service. It’s also possible that an entirely different component is causing your problem. You may want to have a professional mobile mechanic come to your location and complete a car is slow to accelerate inspection.
