Tranny problems

Howdy all, i'm new here
I have a problem with my 88 LTD, It is having a hard time shifting into Over drive. the lower gears shift fine, but it won't go into OD unless i flat foot it to 65 then lift, then it will shift, sometimes it will shift normally, but not very often
I've tried adjusting the linkage there on the by the motor, but that only makes the lower gears shift hard.
any ideas?

Re: Tranny problems

actually i think its just not goin into top gear, However i I took someone who is more mechanicly inclined than me for a test ride, and they came to the same conclusion as me.
Also i asked around and some ppl thought it might be the selnoid (sp) in the tranny, but i don't know much bout the interworkin of an automatic tranny, when it does go into top gear (after i've got it up to 65) it shifts HARD.

I've been lookin for another one, alot settin along the road for sell here in WV

Thanks for the ideas thou

Re: Tranny problems

Check all of your vacuum hoses too! Along with the SEAFOAM, it's not very expensive to do these things first and it might save you hundreds.

Re: Tranny problems

od failure is fairly common on an aod tranny. you need the od band replaced.
