Greeting to all Mustang lovers out there! I'm on my 15th Mustang!
My 1998 GT starting slipping pretty bad going into first gear. It would take 2-3 seconds to engage, but once it did, it was fine. It did this for about two weeks.
I took my kids on a ride to the "donut shop" as they call it, as I often have, and did a few smokey spins just to keep the tire makers in business.
When I was done, the car would only go about 3 miles per hour no matter what I did. I limped it home and on a downhill, it actually engaged second and drove fine. But as soon as I slowed down, I was back to the 3 mph limit.
So I figure I need to swap the transmission. I'm confused as which other year models the 98 GT auto is compatible with.
Car-part.com says the 98 used either a F8ZP-BA, or a PKF-AB. It claims the 97 uses a 8-280, while some sites say all 97-04 use a 4R70W. So I'm confused as which years, if any, I could potentially use to swap other than another 98.
If anyone could enlighten me, I would be grateful!
