Well fellas and chicks, the vert is down for a while. On the way to work this morning 5th gear died on me. I think it was my fault but I'm not sure. I tried to downshift into third on the freeway from 4th but wound up back in fifth with a horible crunch. About 2 miles down the road the tranny started making some really horrible sounds so I put it back into fourth and the noises stopped. I pulled over anyway to minimize any damage that particulate that's floating around in there would do. Has anyone had any experience with Ford concerning transmissions and swapping over to a synthetic tranny fluid instead of the crap Mercon V they put in from the factory?

Looks like a replacement tranny is on order. They haven't opened the old one up yet so I don't know for sure if it's gonna be covered or not. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Are they trying to give you crap about the mods? Is this on the 04' in your sig?

They haven't said anything about the mods so far, but they hadn't opened up the tranny when I talked to them earlier. Yeah this is on the '04, I've already replaced the one in the '83.

Thanks. If I end up paying for the repair I'm just gonna swap to a Cobra 6 speed so when I get a blower the transmission is better suited for the motor.
