no 1st (sometimes) '95 4r70w

heres the deal... i get in the cat start it up and every gear is where it should be, how it should be, but after a while I notice the car seems very rough off a stop and it has no low end power, then i realize its only shifting 3 times (2-4th). I get to a parking lot and drop the tranny down to first (you know 1st-2nd-drive) and the car is acting like theres no fluid in the the TC, you step on the gas and the car barely moves. This has been going on now for 2 days...i can get 1 maybe 2 shifts thru first and then the damn thing acts like 1st isnt there! The rest of the gears work fine, and minus the roughness of a light the car runs perfect.
No codes are showing up so im at a complete loss. I already had to replace the original tranny about 6 months ago because it blew itself to pieces and the current one was rebuilt by ford in '04 and has given me 6 months of no problems. I just replaced the motor last month (RIP 165,000) and im really not wanting to have to replace something else. Thanks

Have you checked the fluid level? Maybe it's low. Is the OD light flashing?

These are highly engineered precision vehicles, the first step in diagnosing the problem is to strike the suspected offending part sharply and repeatedly with a blunt object, then re-test.

You did replace the torque converter and flush the tranny lines and the cooler before you installed that new transmission didn't you?

fordman: tranny fluids fine (guess i should have put that in) and the OD switch hasnt worked for almost a year....could this be connected to the problem?

darrin: yes- 3 times

Now today on my drive to work and from work the car ran fine (very fine indeed) and first worked the entire time. Could it be the silinoid was hung up for a while or anything like that. Also im picking up the B&M shift kit this friday(discount APs $50) and was wondering what exactly it comes with and could it fix the problem.
Thanks again-tim

I wouldn't use that shift kit. Unless you feel like buying another trans. in the near future. Do the j-mod instead, since it is designed to work best with that trans.

well since the B&M kit doesnt seem to be the popular vote (thanks for the opinions). It looks like im taking a step back and going with the jmod. Now any opinions with what the hell my trannys doing?
