Check to make sure that the modulator hose is connected to the modulator. It's on the lower right side of the tranny.
If it is connected, remove the hose fron the Modulator, if you have tranny fluid leak of the modulater or rubber hose, it's time to replace the Modulator, the internal diapham is leaking. This will cause a delayed shift or no shift at all.

Are we talkin about a 92 town car?
If so my 91 did the same exact thing & so did my cousins 95 mark viii.

I took mine to AAMCO & had them do the complete tranny flush & then drop the pan & replace the filter & top off the fluid again. It cost me $130.

My cousin had the same thing done but at the dealer & cost him $200.

I used to work at a Lincoln dealership in 94-95 & something about these trannys you have to get ALL the fluid out of the convertor. If you just drop the pan & replace the filter your only replacing 7 out of 14 quarts of fluid.
Both out Lincoln are like new now. ;)

Damn man that is the same thing that used to happen to my caddy. Then one day i was driving and it just kept revving and wouldnt move, i had to replace the tranny, hope that isnt the same problem you got though.
