Guess I should have had it rebuilt in April, instead of trying to save a few bucks,
when I was on my way home I had to go back up that hill had to stop about half way up the hill behind a bus.
Now when the trans shifts in feels like the trans is slamming into gear.
So I guess it time to pull the trans and get it rebuilt the trans has 175000 miles on it.
Question take it to a Ford dealer or a transmission shop.
the guy that changed the fluid said he would rebuild for $2600.00, but I am kind of leery of this guy. At least he speaks English.

</TD><TD>As you are well aware, the fluid cooler system is critical to the proper and warrantable service of your JASPER Transmission. Because you are inspecting and servicing the fluid cooler system during installation, it is your responsibility to verify the system is free of contamination and has proper cooler flow. In order of preference, here are some options to ensure proper flow. 1. REPLACE WITH A NEW SYSTEM (RADIATOR): Check flow to assure lines are clear. Check for proper operation of the checkvalve, where applicable. There are special applications where JASPER requires cooler replacement. For these cases JASPER provides a cooler kit with the unit. Installation of the cooler is MANDATORY on these applications or warranty may be void. 2. REPLACE WITH AN EXTERNAL SYSTEM: On applications where air flow could be restricted, a cooler fan would be required or the installation of an oil-to-coolant style system 3. FLUSH THE ORIGINAL SYSTEM: JASPER recommends hydraulic shock flushers, with the heated models being the preferred option. In all cases, always flow-test at operating temperature. Compare the volume exiting the transmission to the volume where it returns to the transmission. NOTE: JASPER does NOT consider Flush in a Can effective and therefore not an acceptable method of flushing.</TD></TR><TR><TD> </TD><TD> </TD></TR><TR><TD vAlign=top align=right>Updates:
