Mark VIII 4R70W Trouble
I recently bought a '93 Mark VIII. Last week the car started shifting poorly. It holds 1st gear almost till redline at half throttle and it seems like you have to let off to get it to shift. It has also "neutraled" twice when I have punched on it. I'm not sure if it was the kick down from 3-2 or from 2-1. I have read a lot and I think it could be the 1-2 accumulator as I'm not sure if it was ever updated. Another strange thing that was happening whether related or not was every time I put the car in neutral or park the antenna would retract and cause the factory ten disc changer to error but if I was listening to the radio it would remain on. I have owned (and still do) a '91 T-Bird Sport for almost ten years and have lurked on these boards for a long time. I look forward to your responses.
