EF BTR concerns

Hey guys I have some concerns with the tranny in my 96 EF Futura.
it shifts perfectly when either warm or cold power or econ however
97% of the time when pulling up to a set of lights it will shift into first gear before coming to a complete stop, which will make the car lurch forward to a degree. Also, if i turn a corner slowly and then accelerate it will kinda do the same thing, feels like it is unsure of which gear to be in and will flare for maybe 2 seconds. All other shifting is perfect. I have done some research and it points to either a clogged filter ( tranny has been serviced twice in the last 4 months no problem found mechanically ) also i have been told it MAY be a problem with the torque converter control solenoid or a speed sensor of some sort.

Also it sorta has the torque lock-up shudder at higher speeds, its very very slight - has 110,000k's on the clock

Has anyone had this sort of problem or can shed some light on the subject. I have not checked for codes as I do not have the right equipment and dont really know how either. How much would ford charge to check for codes?

Re: EF BTR concerns

i know what you mean, just before you come to a stop, or just when you do so, theres a slight push. From what i remember my EL falcon has been doing it since i remember?

Also have you calibrated your TPS? This made my auto shift so much smoother as well!

Re: EF BTR concerns

it sounds like tps or possible speedo transducer, more often than not a lockup clutch solenoid will stall engine on pull up, go a get a dtc (diagnostic trouble code) read out & that will give some idea shouldnt cost more than $40 if not free. David (automatics of marion sa)

damn i think it is leave car in drive apply brake for 1 minute, then turn off engine but ignition on, and put accelerator right to the floor for at least another minute.

Re: EF BTR concerns

thanks guys,

I'll give ford a call and see what they can do for me

Oh and when i pull up at the lights and the car lurches, it doesnt stall but the rpm's drop enough to make it shudder but it quickly corrects itself ( least i know the ISC works )
