gearbox hard kick

My EF fairmont has a tendency that mainly when its cold and you take off (no matter fast or slow) when it changes into second gives you a wicked kick.

Does anyone have an idea of why it is kicking so hard the other gears change so smooth you barley noitice the gears changing. It also will give a hard kick going into second even when the car has wormed up if you excellerate hard (floor it) it will give you that hard kick 98% of the time.

It is a 4.0 1994 fairmont 4spdauto.

maybe it just dont like me i dont know

Re: gearbox hard kick

dam, sounds dodgy, mine did the same thing in my EBs 4speed auto, apparently they thort it was one of the solinoids...but wen they took the tranny appart we saw a whole lots of metal grit and crap in the bottom...not good...got new tranny after...
but yeh tranny got worse n worse...i thort it was cauz it was cauz it was cold but it started happenin more regularly...like high over revs then massive kickback! i started takin my foot off the accelerator wen i knew it was gonna change gears...semi-releaved the kicks intensity but yeah...i'd get it looked at, i'd think ya almost due for a new tranny! good luck

Re: gearbox hard kick

Sounds like the S5 pressure solenoid to me. It is normally the 1-2 shift that suffers, but have also had it only on 2-3. Get a PCM code check done first, as these cars are very prone to shift problems if the Gear Position Sensor plays up.

Re: gearbox hard kick

Actually im experiencing something along the lines that ''Namtab'' and ''Cominthru'' have mentioned. Thru gear changes or when you accelerate a little bit then you back off just does the kickback thing. It tends to tick me off at times but its nothing thats a major concern, still get smooth gear changes and the odd flatstick doesnt really effect it but so far so good *touch wood*

Re: gearbox hard kick

I had the same problem in my ea manual and it wasnt the solinoids, it was simply the engine mounts. Previously thought it could of been the gear box mount ( carnt remember the name for it bit too late for thinking - 3:50am )

Re: gearbox hard kick

namtab

check transmission/driveline forum on this site "EL hard changes" - something like that anyway. It mentions in more detail solenoid problems. My EL does same - cold changes are beautiful, warm ones are very hard. 1st/2nd and 2nd/3rd shifts. I have also taken to locking trans in 3rd around town to stop it double shifting into 3rd then 4th around town.
