Question type: Maintenance & Repair

i have a 88 5.0 gt... it has 4 11 gears in it since i bought the car.... tonight on my way home from work when i shift gears they do not have as much power and have a little backfire when i shift thru them.. its like a raspy sound.... almost sounds like a tick... is this a transmission problem or could it be oil gaskets or where do i start to find the problem.

Backfiring and a tick sound engine related to me. Is your check engine light one?

agree with above.... 4.11 refers to your ring and pinion anyways, has nothing to do with shifting gears

85

^ agreed. and a backfire under load or when you lift to shift?

no lights are on..... so what are the possible things wrong would you say
