Transmission issue!

Had a stage 1 shift kit installed in my 94 automatic gt and ever since its been doing some wierd things. Every once and awhile itll jump out of gear and my rpms shoot up like im in n but i have it in d and more importantly if i make a high g turn to the right it will pop out of gear and act like its in n again so far its allways gone back in gear but its happining more and more frequently and now not just when i turn to the right sometimes it does it just accellerating streight and when its cold and i back out of my driveway then put it in drive from reverse it takes a long time to go into gear like as many as 4 or 5 sec sometimes. Whats the problem? Should i be saving for a new transmission? Is this a comon problem? Any help would be awsome thx.

Y would i need fluid though? I just had the work done and they "flushed" it and put new in. At least charged me for it. Ill check anyway thanks for ur advice. Knowing my luck they will have forgoten to tighten the drain plug back up or heaven forbid its over tightened.

He said have you checked it, just making sure they put enough in it. Crank it up and let it warm up and shift through all the gears to get fluid pumping good, place in park on a level surface and check it while running.

I never had a shift kit installed, but my '94 v6 trans did the same thing. Over the course of a month it gradually got worse until it wouldn't go into gear at all.

I have had some real bad luck with automatics though.. I don't really ever want another, especially in a Mustang.






Good thing I'm swapping mine out for 5 speed

Re: Transmission issue!

ive got a 7oohp rated aod and a stock aod with auto/manual valve body. never had that issue. i think u got some dirt or metal n the valve body that's intermittantly blocking a check ball or two. thats of course if the fluid is topped off.

you could try flushing the trans again, changing filter, and installing a trans magnet or two in the tranny pan. it will keep metal and clutch particles out of your valve body to prevent them from interferring with the check balls... as well as greatly improve the lifespan of your tranny.

another thing... check and c if the shift linkage is outa adjustment. it will cause your issue as well. it only takes a tiny bit for it to b outa adjustment. i dought its causing your issue, but i had a similar problem once

u may need to flush it again. wut color is the fluid? is it close to bright red like new fluid? hopefully u didnt over heat the fluid from driving it low. im just thrown ideas out there.

svtlx has it right.
Every time it slipped or felt like it was dropping out of gear the tranny was slipping.
When it was doing that you were burning the clutches in the transmission.
If the fluid is discolored dark red or brown, that is residue from the burnt clutches.
