Thanks. I just didn't want to do the "wrong" thing. I felt weird by asking. Perhaps cheap. But then again. Like I said.I also didn't want to donate 5 bucks when 50 was expected. Then I would REALLY come across as cheap. Thanks for clearing this up for me.
My question is with my 97 F150. Which has always been a love/hate relationship. For the last 2 years now. It has a real rough shift from 1st to 2nd (after coming off a stop at a light or intersection). It just hangs there and revs for a second but finally jerks and kicks in once I pamper the gas pedal a bit. It shifts beautifully in every other gear and this behavior has not changed in the last 2 1/2 years.
It's an Automatic. And it just hates it when I go from a stop to the next gear.
I can't complain too much as this truck has 258,000 miles on her. It's a 4.2 Liter V6.
I'm not a mechanic. Obviously. But I have heard about something called an Accumulator Spring that goes bad once in awhile and could possibly be a cause.
With my luck though. Its probably the tranny ready to go.(But two years now?)
