The engine's at 114,000 miles and I can't recall when I've had a transmission tune up last. I hope that's not the case, but maybe some one might know.

I also haven't had my timing belt nor alternator checked out for problems, but my mechanic was mentioning that Mustangs need a carbon-buildup-cleaning in them every once in awhile which may cause problems. Any help?
When did you last change the transmission fluid?

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17
