I have a 95 Taurus 3.0 with a 4spd AX4N tranny. Also says SHO on bottom of pan for some reason.
When the car is cold after sitting for awhile it shifts great but after it has warmed up, shift from 1st to 2nd is very hard. There seems to be a pause between the shift, only a slight pause but enough to slam it into gear, jerking the car because the rpm continues going up without the gear grabbing and when it finally does it slams in. The engine is running perfect, just a pause then when it does go into 2nd it slams and jerks the car forward. If you ease into the throttle I don't notice it much but if I pull out onto a street and accelerate to get up to speed it is very noticeable. A friend of mine that worked at a Ford Dealer on cars said it might be the torque converter.
Any help please!
have the same problem?
