4 11 gears.... gears????

Asked by Oct 03, 2012 at 05:05 AM about the 1988 Ford Mustang GT

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


^ 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
