    Drivetrain TKO 600 Swap, but what else?

    Hello all! I pulled my T5 today in preparation for a TKO swap. I've got all the big parts already (bellhousing, clutch, driveshaft) and I'm trying to think of other things I should do while I've got it apart. Planning to do rear main seal, throwout bearing, pilot bearing, clutch fork, and have...

    Drivetrain T5 Teardown Question

    Hey everyone, So the '90 LX 5.0 that I recently picked up had a whole hose of transmission issues with the T5 so I took it apart and have a few new questions. The symptoms were grinding going into every gear, with 1-2 being the worst and had to be perfectly rev-matched to let it into the gear...

    TR3650 dragging noise early in gears low rpms

    Until 1300rpm there is a dragging metal on metal noise in every gear. Sounds like a metal cable dragging against something metal spinning. Noise goes away with higher speed at 1300rpm. No noise cruising above 50mph in 5th for instance at or above 1500 rpm. But there is noise early as every gear...

    T56/Spec clutch help please!

    So I just picked up a 1993 LX last night, it has a T56 with a spec clutch that is not fully engaging. I didn't really "get on it" in the test drive as it was a low mile super clean car. Pedal is all the way out and the fork looks like it has no more room to move. Clutch doesn't fully engage and...

    Very bad vibration from clutch pedal after hitting a bump

    I was going 10-15 mph down an alleyway when I hit a bump I did not see. There was a very solid sounding hit and slight scrape. The next day I was driving and my clutch pedal started to vibrate rapidly in neutral and every gear, getting worse the higher the rpm’s are. I checked underneath the car...

    Auto Transmission oil change.

    I recently got a brand new 2019 Auto GT. I want to take real good care of it. The manual says to change the trans fluid every 150k miles, but I hear people say they change it every 30k miles. Are these people wasting their money or will this preserve the car? I'm 19 so I will drive it hard at...

    T5 vs Toploader 4 speed???

    hey fellas i’m going to swap my c4 for either a t5 or a 4 speed top loader but i’m stuck between the two. I’m currently running 3.55s and as soon as i hit 65 i’m at 3k rpms so highway gas mileage goes out the window and i don’t want to be cruising at 3-4k. What i’m asking is what is more worth...

    What's it Worth? Transmission Value

    I've decided to let a few things go finally. I don't normally sell Fox body stuff at all. But I have a few things I'll never use. First up is AOD transmissions. I have two that came out of driving cars. I've had them for a long time. I'd like to know what they are going for now. Thanks!

    Any benefit to upgrading the top loader bell housing to a T5 bell when doing a T5 conversion?

    Hello all. I have a 1966 with a 302, 4 speed manual. I am doing the T5 swap soon and am debating on using an adapter plate to connect the T5 to the original bell housing, or "upgrading" to the T5 bell housing. Is there any functional benefit to doing this or any negative to not doing it? I plan...

    Clutch going bad or something else? Please help

    2009 base model. V6 manual trans. So, I started noticing some grinding of gears (all gears. Shifting up) when I shift. If I shift slowly, there is no grind. It just takes a brief pause after I shift out of a gear before I shift into the next gear, and then there is no grind. So, I came to my...

    Still won’t go into gear after replacing 2 parts

    Thanks for taking the time for anyone who does. I’ll cut to the chase. I have a 2003 mustang gt with the 5-speed manual. I just recently replaced my throw out bearing which seemed to go just fine. After the job it drove fine for one whole day, then it became hard to get into gear. Long story...

    Auto Trans Slams Downshift

    Hi, I have a 2003 Mustang GT Automatic Transmission with 80k miles. When driving, if I punch the throttle, the car will downshift after a second or so, and it slams when doing so. The slam feels to be in the rear end. It doesnt have any problems downshifting regularly, and upshifting is ok...

    C4 Transmission has very delayed shifts

    Hi guys, I have a 1970 mustang with a 302 and a c4 select shift transmission. Recently the transmission has been delaying its shifts more frequently as time passes. I adjusted the vacuum modulator screw to reduce the delay and it has not worked (3 full turns counterclockwise). As of right now...

    98 3.8L T5 transmission seal and bushing

    Fun T5 question for a 98 3.8L: Leaking out rear of transmission where yoke enters. I can find an output seal easy enough, but I believe there is going to be "bushing" or "bearing" around the splines that I'll need to replace. Wondering if it's something I can do without dropping transmission. I...

    T-5 issue with 3/4 slider on rebuild

    Been rebuilding the T-5 (WC) in my 2000 V6 mustang. Having issues with the 3/4 slider on the rebuild. Slider works fine for 3rd gear but when I attempt to act like I'm shifting to 4th gear, the slider goes too far, which causes the keys in the slider to 'stand up', stopping the slider from...
