My problem is that under acceleration my trans wont shift unless i let off the gas, i am in
the process of having a 4F27E rebuilt for it but i just wanted to make sure that this is the

I had the local parts shop run their diagnostic test- came back as a fuse/sensor, accessed through the transmission fluid pan. Ordered it from Ford, climbed under and did it all myself. Most auto parts stores will run the diagnostic widget for you for free.
