I have a 2002 Ford Thunderbird with 93k miles. Just recently I have experienced a hard shift between 1st & 2nd Gear. It does it sporadically(Maybe once or twice a day). Can it be low on transmission fluid or is there some other problem it could be? It shifts properly about 99% of the time.
My T-Bird has 93k miles on it. Within the last few days I have experienced a shifting problem when accelerating. It does it only once or twice a day. When it shifts it hesitates then jerks into gear. Has this been a common problem of the 2002 T-Bird? Should I take it to a transmission shop and have them test it?
Yes fluid is the first thing I would check and then the modulator valve.
