    1993 Mustang 2.3 L Automatic A4LD Transmission - Help

    Hi, We took my sons 1993 Fox in to a transmission shop to do a transmission swap. The replacement is a used transmission from a 1989 Fox. All indications is that this is a reliable swap with no major issues. However, the shop mechanics installed the transmission before checking any connections...

    Engine Who should I go with for a new 351W and manual trans

    Can’t get into any gear

    Hello, I recently bought a 95 GT and have been having a problem occasionally where only when I’m not moving (like at a stop light or stop sign) it will not let me into gear with the clutch pedal all the way to the floor, I can force it into gear if I push hard enough and it won’t grind but it is...

    TR-3650 Clutch Installation

    Just finished installing new clutch in TR-3650 (2002 GT), but there seems to be very little clearance (About 1/2 inch) between the clutch fork and the transmission housing (see first pic). Is this normal? Seems to be very little throw. Wondering if I did something wrong during install. Any...

    Aod transmission issues

    Alright so I just swapped in an aod transmission into my foxbody. I currently have it all setup from my last aod with a lokar kickdown kit. I had the pressure for the cable set but it seems to be getting tied up. Car shifts fine but when you launch the car the car won’t shift. When installing...

    Drivetrain Is it worth it to rebuild an aod transmission or get something else?

    Is it worth it to rebuild an aod transmission or get something else? Transmission started slipping bad so I was wondering if I should stay with the aod or go to something else.

    Holding AOD in gear - responsibly

    I’ve searched about this and most people seem to want to drag race shifting an AOD manually. I simply enjoy holding it in 2nd on country roads to be in that 2-3k rmp range instead of 1k. If I ever downshift its at the right speed to feel smooth, and only one gear at a time, not on the throttle...

    Hard downshift OD to 3rd

    Well I'm back with yet another new edge issue! My automatic transmission on my 2001 GT has been having some hard downshifts from OD to 3rd. This typically happens when I'm cruising at 60 and let off the gas to allow the car to slow without braking. I feel a hard clunk as the car shifts down, the...

    1972 Mach 1 wont go above 4k rpm

    So I’ve dreaded doing this for a while because I’ve searched far and wide for answers and I’m still left with the same problem. I have a ‘72 Ford Mustang Mach 1, i bought it with a 2v headed Cleveland, FMX, and a 8in rear. It is a true Q-code car so it is supposed to be a 4V cleveland, with a C6...

    T5 bellhousing

    Hi, new here. I've been looking at doing a T5 transmission swap from my current C4 transmission. The t5 I'm looking at is from 1993 and comes with the bellhousing. I'm just wondering if the bolt pattern on that 93 bellhousing will match/mate directly with the 1971 302 engine or would it require...

    Tune Causing Problems

    Hello! After having my car Dyno tuned with the SCT X4 Tuner, I have noticed a slight fluttering sound coming from the front of my car when in lower RPMS / higher gears. This sound goes away from either being masked by the sound of my engine or just going away completely; when I accelerate...

    Drivetrain TKO 600 swap notes

    A couple months back I got a screaming deal on a clean, bone stock 90 LX with tranny issues, so I just went ahead and swapped my T5 for a TKO 600. I watched several videos and read other write-ups before tackling this, but I wanted to add my 2 cents to the mix for others who are contemplating...

    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!
