How to Make Your Car Last Forever: Auto Q&A with Tom Torbjornsen

Dear Tom,

I own a ’91 Lincoln Town Car with the 4.6-liter V8. While I was driving home the other day the accelerator seemed to slip past its normal position a little too far. From then on, it accelerates very slowly and will not kick into overdrive when the accelerator is depressed all the way to the floor. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

While countless other young athletes might have a similar story to tell, very few — if any — have ever taken it quite as far as Helmicki.
