April 25, 2010I have a 90 mustang 5.0 wiyh an automatic trans and it feels to be skipping 2nd gear and looses the peddle until you reach the required 3rd gear speed. At times it doesn`t seem to want to kickdown aswell.I dont think its slipping but Im not sure it feels like something else.the seller I bought it from claims he put a new trans on it with a shift kit installed. Any help would be aprieciated thanks.

April 27, 2010Is that one of the years that has the cable operated kickdown (TV cable I think it`s called)?
If so, it is probably out of adjustment. If you leave it like that too long you`ll mess up the transmission shifting until you get it rebuilt.
April 30, 2010Thank you 4 your help I think your right ILL get it adjusted & go from thier. I hope I haven"t destroyed anything else could this ruin my trans or the valvebody? just wondering what the side affects of this problem could be if not able to fix right away thanks
May 2, 2010Good luck!
I think it can be very hard on your shift clutches (yes, there are small friction plates called clutches in your auto tranny). One side affect can be that OD and 1st are sometimes both engaged at the same time.
So, get it checked and adjusted sooner than later!
