Default My AOD is FU(KED!

Thursday I drove to my office and it drove fine, in fact I've never had a problem with it. Last night I drive it and the trans is slipping. From a stop it more often then not will just rev without moving and then start moving and doesn't want to shift into overdrive at all. What could have caused all this? I don't manually shift the car or do neutral drops. I checked the fluid and it seems normal. I thought about putting a bottle of Lucas Transmission Fix in it and pray. If there is serious damage I am not looking forward to driving the '93 Tempo until I can afford to fix the Mustang. [&o]

Well I put two 24oz bottles of Lucas Transmission Fix in it and it seems to be improving with time. I drove it about 5mi and at first it didn't change at all and then gradually it is shifting into drive and overdrive easier. I have been thinking about swapping in a 5 speed but I'm not sure if I can do it by myself. I have removed and replaced a T-5 my last mustang and it was easier than I thought it would be but it's having to put a clutch, cables, and a pedal that wasn't there before. Although with having 4.10s a 5 speed will make the car much more drivable on the highway, no more cruising at 3k rpms.

how do you figure that? t-5's have a .68 overdrive while your aod has a .63 overdrive if i'm not mistaken.

Mine was doing the same thing awhile ago, but mine turned out to be the linkage that goes from the throttle body to the tranny, it just broke off....
When i put a new one it worked great...

I say convert it to a 5 speed. If it happens to be the AOD is going out, which I would put money on that, then you could find a 5 speed swap with everything you need for 500-1000 dollars. I got mine for 600 shipped and let me tell you, that ol AOD wouldnt have lasted a month with my new engine and what I put it through.

(I hate a stock AOD)
