Mike,
Could you give us a little more info please. What type of tranny are we talking about? C-4, C-6, FMX, or a manual? It does make a difference helping you diagnose the problem. Thanks.

I,ll go along with Dave on this one , more info needed But for now check your tranny fluid on your automatic , also , could be a band adjustment or something as simple as a soft seal re-do. If you have a manual , check your clutch adjustment, could also be pressure plate or as simple as a bit of oil got blown onto the clutch face. Just for laughs make sure it is your tranny and not a miss in your motor that is trying to fool you. Looking forward to more info from you.

C-4 Automatic. It leaks so I'm in the prossess of finding the source. The problem occurs when fluid levels are ok so I dont think they are related. Thanks, Mike

Mike,
I thought so on the C-4 but wasn't sure. Get the bands adjusted especially if you have to let off the gas pedal to get the tranny to shift into a higher gear. Let us know about that leak also. We can help.

Mike,
Sounds like you need to get the bands adjusted in your tranny. Do you have to let off the gas in order to get the tranny into a higher gear?

I took a chance and thought it might be something simple like installing a new filter (not to say installing the new filter was simple) but it sounded like a possible solution. "X" WRONG ANSWER. Didn't fix the problem. So how do I go about getting the belts adjusted? I guess this will require a trans. repair shop and a tech. experianced in this feild? And a how much is something like this going to cost? I appreciate your help.
Thanks, Mike

The Ford shop manual has instructions on band adjustment. It's just a matter of locating the studs, loosening the nuts, and tightening the stud with an inch pound torque wrench.
