Power: 315 rwkw

Location: Under the flight path of incoming packpackers
NSW, Australia

I'm going to have it rebuilt to handle the power its getting at the moment, but thought Id ask if there is a solution to the following...

If I give it full throttle from a standing start with the auto in economy it changes up but slips when it warms up

If its in power it doesnt slip but wont change up at all unless I lift off throttle.

Is there a sensor or something playing up and not letting it change up? Or is it just stuffed all together?

cheers

Might be a gearbox solenoid, go to a transmission place and ask them to take a look at it, they'll plug in their little computer and give you the error code and what it means.
(If they dont have a ford book they may not know 100% what the error code is but im sure you will have one :))

I've seen much worse on standard setups :wink:

Chef... your thoughts on running in economy mode with a resistor on the S5 solenoid??

Worth a try maybe... changes lower in the rev range so that would be good as Im not too keen on reving it past 4500 anyway.

What value resisitor should I try?
