1986 GT AOD shift skips from 2nd to OD

Hey,

I have a 1986 Mustang GT with an AOD that will skip gears if I'm too
easy on the throttle. If I use WOT it will shift 1 - 2 and than bog
down by skipping to Over Drive. Usually happens after the car is warmed
up. I would appreciate any one's imput as to why this is happening.
Thanks! Sean

I'm interested in the "why" ...as in "why does my transmission skip 3rd
and go right to Overdrive' Is it a vaccum issue; band adjustment; etc.
Thanks, Sean

It's a Ford AOD...it's supposed to do that. 8-)

Have you ever changed the fluid? Was this a sudden change or did it
happen over the course of a few weeks/months? What kind of mileage on
the transmission?

Cheers,

Actually, depending on the car's speed and how fast you're
accelerating, that's sort of correct. If I'm accelerating fairly hard
up through 2nd and then let off the gas quickly, it'll go right into
OD (it actually hits 3rd, but only for a split second) if I'm going
fast enough.

Of course, service is paramount. If you've been neglectful, the
problem could be serious.

My 91 did the same thing ,(stacked shifts), It turned out to be the grommet
under the intake where the aod cable end connects. The plastic clip broke.
It is hard to see.

Re: 1986 GT AOD shift skips from 2nd to OD

Thanks for the responses. I'm the 3rd owner and do not know the
service history of the transmission. The car has 56k on it. All stock,
engine still has the orignial hoses from the factory with the staples
holding the clamps. TheThe guys who had the car before took very good
care of engine and body, but may have driven this car hard. The fluid
looks fine, and the transmission shifts just fine "most of the time".
I was looking for some insight before I jump in too deep.

I'll take a look at the gromment under the intake. Start with the easy
stuff first. Thanks again,
