Problems with my Auto....

Alright sometimes when I am accelerating from a dead stop the tranny wont shift from 1st to 2nd with out me taking my foot off the gas. The RPM's will keep going and going and it will not shift. It doesnt do it everytie just when I am accelerating at a decent speed.(Its never done it when i have it floored from a stop)

what could be causing this? Its annoying the #### out of me. I am going to buy a new tranny but before I do that I want to make sure that it isnt anything else that could be causing it.

could be the computer not telling it to shift, or it could be the clutch plates not activating. dont know for sure though.

clutch plates : on an auto :

I thought the engine had a flexplate that was bolted to the torque converter which was attached to the tranny, without any clutchplates?

My tranny was acting up last year like that and it was the Solenoid pack.

yes, the auto has a flexplate, but there are clutchplates inside the converter. the converter is like the automatics version of a clutch. simplest way put.


Very true

My G/F's auto does this... It's annoying as crap, I just figured atuo's in mustangs really sucked. I'll have to let her know that it's fixable.

Go to a tranny shop and have them run a diagnostic check on it. Call around and find one that will do it for free

As far as the solenoid pack is concerned it is what the computer uses to control the shift

How much did it cost to get yours fixed?

evin....i went to that muffler shop B&M in corona to have my duals put on. when i aproched the guy he like almost yelled at me and said to leave my car fo 4 or 5 hours. i tried to calm him down by saying i would come back another day and maybe we could set up a time. he went off on me again so i just told him i would contact him later. i then went to speedway muffler in rancho and the put it on in 2 hours and charged me $106 including tax. much nice people...easier to deal with.
