Transmission Question/Issue

I have a 2014 V6 automatic. My tranny will sometimes hang before dropping in overdrive or jump a couple hundred revs before dropping in overdrive. Happens quickly, probably not even a whole second. Keep hearing this is normal with these torque converters but I'm not so sure. Only 52k miles.

I guess no one has a clue or has not experienced this before

I'm no expert but I think its called a shift 'flare'. You can pull fuse number 47 in the fuse box in the engine bay for an hour or so. Put the fuse back in and take it for a test drive to see if anything changes.

Check with your Ford dealer to see if TSB 11-11-11 applies to your Mustang.

My Mustang does what yours is doing ever once in a while, I'm just going to live with it for now

It's not horrible and doesn't seem to do any harm, just aggravating. I wanna make sure it's nothing that's small and will become a bigger problem. Thank you though! If it doesn't work I'll keep researching and may just take it to the dealer. It's under warranty.

Come back and let us know what your dealer says. Could be a shift solenoid also, I think they are 4-6 of them in our transmissions. Good luck

Transmission Question/Issue

Update: Went ahead and pulled the fuse at work. Went on a test drive and so far, resetting the adaptive shifting seems to have done the trick. Shifting feels much better overall and flares are gone.

I drive in a TON of bad stop and go traffic, so I think the adaptive shifting is adapting a little too much to that factor. May have to reset once a week or every other week. Better than having bad solenoids IMO.
