I have a eb falcon series 2,4 litre engine
it goes well over all but with my foot to the floor it wont change from 2nd gear to third and as soon as i back off it changes fine,so basically when i give it to it the best result is to just put your foot at 3 quarter throttle i must have a great loss of power when i do this not to mention wasting fuel can anyone help?

Either adjust the bands on the gearbox yourself, or get a transmission place to do it.
There's a thread here http://www.fordmods.com/forums/viewtopi ... highlight= where I copied out the instructions from the Haynes Service Manual for CHEF.
He did it, and said it really helped, and I'm about to have a crack at mine this arvo.

OKay, update, didn't fix the 'not shifting at WOT' problem. I still have to back off to force a shift.
Although now it's nowhere near as harsh.
Think it might be a valvebody problem, I'm taking mine to an trans place this week.
If it's gonna cost too much, I'm gonna source an AU box to slap in..
