Where do i start......, currently had a NL fairlane with an AU engine in it atm, first transmission was diagnosed as an s5, new valve body and solonoids didn't solve that, ended up breaking a band = no reverse. Bought a rebuilt auto and had it installed today only to discover its shifting hard in all gears- mechanic suggested computer troubles? or engine mounts

any ideas would be helpful

cheers jordan

Chances are you can't do this, but can the gearbox modulation pressure but checked and adjusted if required?

Does the car start and run as normal?
Flat spots?
Sharp or sudden acceleration with a constant pedal?
Oil level, type, condition in the gearbox?
Drive shaft secure?
Diff secure?
Any mods to the throttle body?

A few things to look at off the top of my head.

1)yes, although after resetting the TPS, idle is very low- Gas only
2)None
3)Just the normal ford acceleration
4) New oil was put in today, gearbox rebuilt 15k ago, owner assures me shifted fine before hand
5)i would assume so
6)yes
7)none

Going for a diagnostics scan tomorrow
