that's the throttle valve cable, it is only on aod equippped mn12's 89-93, or on any vehicle equipped with an aod for that matter, lol, but his is a 94 so it is a 4r70w which does not use the tv cable, but is computer controlled, anyways, just wanted to clarify.....CaliHwyPatrol said:Mine did the same thing. It would "shift" right when it was supposed to, but then it would just rev up and do nothing, like you said, as if it were in neutral. You should check that little plastic piece. It is a little round piece that holds one of the cables into the TB.
when mine started the same thing i just ordered a 01 tranny from greanleafautoteenageriot13 said:Well it seems I can no longer get into 3rd gear. The car thinks it shifts but it doesn't. And now I still have to get home with 2 gears on major roads the whole way home! Looks like I'll be driving an 79 Mustang for a while now.
Sorry Wrong Forum

You do mean a 99+ Gt tranny right. He does have 4.6 so bolt patterns are different.Thomas said:You need a new tranny. Sart looking. Dont get it rebuilt, buy a used 99+ tranny from a v6 mustang. It's not even worth rebuilding an old one. It sounds like your clutch packs have worn out. Pull out the dipstick, does it look dark brown and smell like butt?
Agreed, Tell them to F#%$ off. There are things they will not rebuild with. In 99+ Gt tranny, first it will be cheaper than rebuild. Upgraded tq convertor, upgraded vb, upgraded EPC solenoid, deep sump pan, better clutch packs, better tranny housing, mechanical 1way diode, I think better output shaft, and should have upgraded shift pistons.Thomas said:Do NOT rebuild that transmission. Granted it will work, for a while, but there are parts that need replacing that they just arent going to replace. If they dont want to put in a used transmission, then do it yourself. This was with the help of one friend of mine who also had only vague knowledge of transmission. But basic knowledge is all you need. All it consists of it removing bolts and nuts to get it out, then putting all the bolts and nuts back on to hold the new transmission on.
We're just looking out for you and want the best for your car. Thats what we're here for. So please take our advice into consideration. Hell you're 21, I was 20 when I threw the new tranny onto my 95. Take the challenge, you'll find it's not all that challenging.
