Hello All,
Well my son was on the hi-way when he lost overdrive and 3rd gears.
I took it is for a ride and notice it does not shift to 3rd.
I had replaced the 1-2 accumulator spring which was broken about 3 years ago.
The 94 v6 Thunderbird now has 135,000 miles on it. Is their something we can do to fix this or do we need a new transmission?
Thanks in advance.

dirtyd0g or anyone else,
I haven't changed out a transmission since the 80's.
Is this one going to be hard to do? Do you have any helpfule hints to do this job?
Thanks in advance.

Well once you get through the exhaust you are good to go. I spend more time on the exhaust than the rest of the job. The starter can be tricky for some I use an air ratchet and a swivel socket and get them out very quick. Drop the differential down far enough to slide the driveshaft out of the transmission up over the diff.
