BTR problems

anyone know of these problems

1) occaisonaly (30% of the time) droping into neutral when come to a complete stop, then engaging 1st when taking off with a slight clunk
2) not downshifting when the shifter is manualy put to 1or2 unless the throttle is bliped and speed reduces.
3) occasionaly going into 3rd (limphome) when accelerating hard, let off, shifts into 4th, and then get on the brakes. But then droping to 1st or 2nd properly when floored

wierd stuff.....allmost seems electronic

ideas????

appart from those things, it shifts dead smooth.

Re: BTR problems

it's the switch, $129 from Ford (Q-Ford) I had same problem and it was the switch, sometimes if i downshift via the lever it will not downshift and while driving it would just jump to neutral or 1st (while doing bloody 100Km/h)

Sorry, when you say the "switch" what exactly are you talking about? I'm having exactly the troubles you've mentioned ... it plays up after a while of driving [shifting to 2nd/neutral at 100kmh etc, then back to drive], and refusing to obey the lever... Thanks :-)

Re: BTR problems

I would guess at the neutral safety switch, which contains a gear postion sensor thinga-me-bob.

Re: BTR problems

Beautiful guys, thanks!

Went down, picked it up for under 90 bucks, took it home put the car on ramps, and popped it on. The hardest part, literally, was finding the right 5/6" socket!! Ford Sunbury [sunford] wanted me to fork out 2200 for a reco transmission coz i was having trouble, and I thought .. errm right .. now I've fixed this up, for 90$ and under half an hours time! I strongly recommend people stay away from there, too many bad experiences. (Unless you're after parts, they generally get parts in within 4-5 hours if they don't have them in stock, whcih they usually do) :)

:-D
