service it first...flush.drain all of the atf.. line,converter/pan.if no help rebuild or have it benched.. tc probably fine..unless grooved or to much end play.


Did that already pan had a lot of grits/flakes/shavings and factory line plug meaning never was changed since it came out factory....


What size motor? Maybe a mustang auto trans might fit. Should be tons of those things floating around since most mustang owners want a 5 speed manual. Try your local craigslist auto parts section.

Your original transmission should be the AOD transmission, Michael is right, you can probably find one for a decent price.
