In need of transmission advise on 99 Stang...
So I just bought this 1999 mustang gt with the 4.6L v8 in it. I've not had the time yet to check to see exactly what transmission is in it yet.. Though I was told upon purchase that it was not the original tranny that come in the car.. The car supposed to have a manual tranny but was converted to auto after the original was burnt up... Since the install of the auto tranny, there has been a shift kit put in though I have no clue to what kind... But here is my problem.. Upon purchase, I know that only reverse works on the car... The lady who owned it said she had the car put into the shop to have the gas filter and pump replaced and shortly after, it started to loose some tranny fluid.. This let the cars gears slip until now it won't pull in drive, 2, or 1... I'm planning to work on it tomorrow but need some ideas on how n what may be the issue.. First thing to do is check to fill the fluid... I was thinking of putting some lucus in it?? Will that may help any? What other things should I check and what could be wrong with it? I plan to keep the auto if possible until I have the funds to change it back to a manual. I'm not a rich guy so putting it in the shop is almost impossible so I'm looking for a cheap way to get it on the road for a few months until I can afford my standard tranny. All help is very much appreciated and I'd like to say thank you for the help in advance!!!
