Major trans problem....PLEASE HELP
my 91 5.0 cougar has been hunting between 3rd and 4th for a couple weeks now but nothing to big a deal i planned on flushing it this weekend and adding lucas as a temporary solution until i go for the t5 swap
anyways i drove it for about twenty minutes, parked it for two minutes and when i went to put it in drive it wouldnt engage, reverse kicks right in but i have to let on the gas for drive to kick in. also it is hesitating shifts and revs between shifts. when you floor it it doesnt slip and engages good. i checked the trans fluid and it smelled alright but the fluid went up about 6-8inches on the dipstick, way past the good mark and it was done running warm.
what do you think it can be? any suggestions? im 18 going to school and work fulltime and i need a solution quick, thanks
