  1. I get really bored at work and my boss is too cheap to pay for cable. I can only take so much Jerry Springer, Steve Wilkos show, and soap operas. It gives me lots of time to surf the net and Stangnet, of course!

    Anyways, If you guys need any info at all on your cars, doesn't even have to be a Mustang, I can pretty much find out just about anything. Capacities, service intervals, technical service bulletins, RECALLS, repair procedures, and for those of you who aren't able to do your own work I can get prices on parts and labor so ya'll know if you are being taken advantage of or not.

    If you ever need any help just shoot me a PM.

    is it possible to diagnose a p0750 code on a 96GT vert with the 4r70w transmission? Like TSB's, repair/diagnose procedures.

  7. Sift Solenoid #1 (SS1) Circuit malfunction.
    Moe than likely a bad ground or bad solenoid.
    The solenoids are on the valve body. Also, check the electrical connections to and from them.
    #173 through 176 is probably where your problem is.
    There are A LOT of TSB's for that tranny. Anything specific you need?
