2003 Mustang GT Auto Transmission Problem
I've done some rifling around on the internet and I didn't come up with anything on my particular problem, possibly because I don't know what the correct terms are.
I've had my 03 GT for about six months. I am the second owner. It has 55,000 miles on it and it's been driven very conservatively by my uncle since it was new. I changed the transmission fluid 7,000 miles ago, and I used only Mercon V, as the manual recommends.
I first noticed my transmission problem last week when crossing the highway. I made a complete stop until the road was clear, and when I pressed the gas the RPM's went up without the car moving, and then it caught, lurching forward. It felt like I did a nuetral slam, which I would never do intentionally. Then earlier this morning I got off an exit and made a complete stop. When I pressed the gas, the car bogged down and struggled to move, similar to being in a standard and not giving it enough gas at launch. Within 2 seconds, the car downshifted and continued without any more trouble.
I hope I've given enough details and background information. I was hoping someone here has had a similar problem and could save me the time of taking it to a shop.
