1993-1994 SHO Transmission Issues

Post by jonw1701 » Thu Oct 27, 2011 1:12 pm

This SHO tranny has some strange issues. When hot, reverse works intermittently, and only when it wants to. Driving forward, after being stopped at a red light or stop sign, when you hit the gas and the engine will rev, but car won't move. If you manually downshift into first (L), the tranny will engage and the car will move, and you can continue manually up-shifting as you accelerate until you are in high gear. This problem is also intermittent, and doesn't happen all the time.

ANY ideas, ANYONE? Ford says it's not something they've heard of before, but I think perhaps the 22-25 year old mechanics fresh out of tech school weren't old enough to drive then, so perhaps they really haven't heard of it before. But certainly the old guys should have. The street mechanics say the 93-94 SHO's are notorious for tranny issues like this, and have heard of similar problems, but have not worked on them personally.

I'm at a loss, and need some input and advice here.
