Question about 1998 Ford Mustang
I have 1998 2D Coupe with 93K miles, which I had bought recently. I did a oil change and tire rotation at Firestobne. Recently I noticed my Over Drive light blinking when I go past 35 miles a little catch in the automatic transmission once it changes gears. Do you think that it is time to change the Tranny Fluid or suspect the transmission needs replacing ?
When was the last time the Transmission Fluid and Filter were changed? More than 35,000 miles = Fluid and Filter change.
Is there any leaks what so ever? This will affect shifting.
Have the Transmission Sensors been removed, cleaned/inspected and reinstalled? These Sensors are "magnets" and catch little metal particles that inhibit their functions, including shifting.
What is the condition and level of the Transmission Fluid. Make sure you smell the Fluid. If it smells burnt, then change it immediately. Make sure you check the level when the engine is at normal temperature and while the engine is running, with the gear in Park or Neutral (with the Parking Brake ON!).
Does this Transmission have a Solenoid (electronic shifting)? If so have you checked the electronic connections for corrosion or oxidation?
Don't spend $2,000 (or more) dollars when the rest of these combined cost less than $200 dollars!
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!
