ok so when i bought my ed gil, the radiator was in bad shape, and the head gasket went shortly after changeing it, thru out that time of the engine running hot, i noticed that the auto would shift very hard from 1st to 2nd and 2nd to third would clunk. only when hot!.
after the radiator was replaced with a newie the problem went away and the auto was smooth all the time.
now its slowly came back again, same again, drives perfectly when cold, or after a good freeway run, but when driving aorund town or stop start, it starts shifting hard 1st to 2nd, and really clunking into 3rd. this is my first auto car so its all new to me, all my other cars have been manuals,
i havnt serviced the auto yet, but from what i can tell, the autos oil seems quite black.

my question is, should i try changeing the oil and filter first and see how that goes?
and if so, whats a good midrange auto oil to use? and what grade.

or can anyone else sugest any other aparent problems that i havent thought of?

any help greatly apreciated. cheers, Rob.

The Genuine filter is part number ED 7A098 A $53.00 from your Ford dealer :D
The oil, TQ95 you can buy from most auto shops in 5 litres as well as 1 ltr. :)

As far as I know, 10 litres for a complete fill. Usually takes between 4-5 litres for a refill after dropping the sump and a new filter.

sorry to hijack, but how important is it to run the correct fluid (ie. suited to BTRs)
i never noticed this until just recently when i spotted a fluid made for BTRs lol
i've always just used random fluid...
