So that indeed was the skip shift solenoid! Have been driving the car a few hundred miles and no MIL.
I'd like to say that the Trans
was installed and I lived happily ever after with my new used mt82... However that's not the case.
I'm having issues with my 1-2 shift, where I'll think my car is in 2nd gear, I let off the clutch and I hear a horrible grinding noise, in which I immediately depress the clutch and go into neutral, third, or 1st depending on my speed.
My bro/mechanic, although I told him to make sure the correct fluid (qdc and additive) was put in the Trans
, he got confused when Ford told him to use "dual clutch" fluid, and opted for the qs fluid. My question is, how likely is it that I have a bad synchro in 2nd gear, or is the issue that I don't have the correct fluid for the year of the Trans
? Every other gear works great except for 2nd. Any help would be awesome
