Weird trans issue...

So i just made a 2500 mile round trip,

I noticed it doing it when it was stock, but ever since i've put the tune on it, it seems to be worse, the trans files in the tune are stock.


Well anyways, in 5th to 6th gear, if you give it a little of throttle like to switch lanes, it seems as if the torque convertor is unlocking and locking several times and doesn't stop. it will do it in 5th gear if i give it a little bit of decent acceleration and is very noticeable..

Just wondering if anyone else noticed this issue.

Or ill be bringing it to the dealership.

Bama, which will be going bye bye once i have the extra 70 bucks to throw at mpt.

I wish i knew what i knew now, it'd have saved me money to buy the sct through my work then have mpt tune it.

Well, I am not trying to step on toes, but I have heard of the trans tuning being a little off with Bama tunes. You can request a new one to see if it fixes it. Since it is free already.

You didn't read my initial post... I said the tuning is stock, because they couldn't figure out why it was slipping so much. Stock tuning had a little slip in between gears, but talking to a few others, their v6's have been doing the same.

Sorry about that. Hmm, well it stinks the tune is loaded now. If it were happening to me when it was stock, I would have took the car back to Ford since it is pretty new. I don't know how they will handle it now though with a tune loaded. Even if the trans tune is stock. Maybe they will be cool about it. To get it inspected, I guess it is worth a try? Worse they can say is no.

Otherwise, see if the next tuning company can iron any issues out. Unless something is really wrong with it.

Maybe down the road you will get another mustang. Or save up and get an older one for cheap to mess with.
