Thanks alot. Doing the trans in the morning. I'll def check that out. Thanks!ok if it goes away or is reduced once you stomp the gas....it may be low atf....the trans will let the line pressure build higher if you stomp the gas rather than you are cruising. before draining it look at the fluid. buy a quart of atf and smell fresh atf...then smell the atf in your car...does it look or smell burnt? (dark in color from age...or very dark due to possible wear of the fiber clutches and band)(lite/clear in color or yellowish tint...possible water intrusion or conditioner thats in the fluid--if theres water intrusion youd notice some hints of rust forming some where low on the dipstick though)
been doing alot of transmissions lately at work...hence my details
that is a plug ford puts in the dipstick tube hole,when they put the tube in it push's the plug in the pan,no big deal. if your getting a surge at steady throttle you probably are having a lean missfire,or secondary ign miss,replace your plugs and checkHe explained it as sort of a plastic mushroom, with an o ring around the top of the cap, and a hole bored into the top op it.

Well I changed the fluid and the filter in the trans, and still getting the hesitations. How can thios be normal? It's EXTREMELY annoying.The hesitation you are feeling is normal for the vehicle . What you are feeling is your tq convertor locking and unlocking . While this is annoying it is not at all harmfull to your transmission. As long as your fluid is correct (mercon 5) and at the proper full level (check as described above) . I being a Ford trans tech would reccommend atleast a trans flush at 50k . If the vehicle has been regurarly serviced a filter is not necessary untill 100k . Even then I have disassembled transmissions that still look new internally with proper flushing. Now the repair. There are a few things that can be doneo repairhis concern the easiest by far is to add 1 pint of friction modifier to the trans and drive the vehice for about 200 miles this will work it way into the convertor and help lubrcate the clutches therfore easing the engaugement of the convertor clutches on lockup . This is what we do on cust cars to help trhe concern. The next alternative is a good v/b or atleast a shift kit . Superior is the co I reccommend for shift kits because part of there process includes enlaging the feed hole for the front allowing more flow reducing convertor clutch lock up time . There are several good co 's that make v/b 's out there do your research and pick one. and finally the trans parameters can be adjusted in a good tune ie sniper, sct, diablo Hope any of this help Chris
