new problems arise

For the 2 years I've had my car its shifted funny. It hesitates when downshifting etc. Today I was riving and accelrated while turning. I had the gas down pretty well. I felt the tranny shift then it hesitated before jerking into gear. Its done that a couple times now. Several months ago I had a fluid flush done and they said the tranny was fine.. but why the hell is it doing this?

Likely your torque converter, sounds to me like its slipping.

on the 1-2 shift? on the down shift into 2nd? if so then your 1 way clutch is going bye bye............. ask me how I know. (mine lasted 3000 miles after that started on mine, just keep getting worse and worse until it failed completely.

Sounds like a torque converter problem, that float you feel is it slipping, and than that tug is it locking up, kinda like a kick to it, if yours is locking and slipping frequently its likely worn out, I could be wrong though, thats just what it sounds like to me. I'm no expert on tc's

also wouldn't hurt to make sure your trans isn't over or under filled.... just an after thought

How many miles are on the car and what type of fluid did they use when they flushed it?

The car has 124k miles. It looks like it was flushed with Mercon 3.... I told them I wanted mercon V but they insisted that there is no difference. Since the place is one of the best transmission shops in the area I figured they were right

Both you and they figured wrong. Slipping in a corner sounds like it is either low on fluid or has a filter issue. The rest might be converter related I don't really understand what you say it is doing.

They were wrong. . . . . Mercron V is definately a better fluid and recommended for these 4R's

Currently In the Short Bus Garage:
2 - '94 T-bird LX's 4.6L (one with 300,000+ miles and one with 200,000+ miles)
1 - '97 Mark VIII LSC - INTECH V8 (120,000+ miles)
1 - '97 F150 XLT 4x4 Flareside, 4.6L (130,000+ miles) - Currently being dismantled and rebuilt with upgrades!
1 - '00 Mustang GT (likes to accelerate with the brake on!), 4.6L (60,000+ miles - only comes out when I need to get somewhere fast.)

oh yeah, and they all have 4R70W's
