Default Transmission swap produced stutter

I have a 1994 GT convertible, 5.0, AODE. The AODE went gunnysack, had an AOD from a 1990 T-Bird SC, installed it and of course had no place to plug in the connectors, now if maintaining a speed in the 30 to 40mph range and you let off fuel or apply very little I get a stutter, kind of like shutting the ignition off and then right back on, may happen once or multiple times. All other functions seem normal. What have I missed? Should I have swapped the ECM as well? Thanks

Sounds like a torque converter issue, did you replace it with the transmission?

Was the TV cable connected and adjusted properly ?

There is nothing electronic about the AOD, it's an "old school" tranny. And the TV cable is what controls all aspects of shifting. Without that cable, or a cable that isn't adjusted properly, you'll burn up that tranny pretty quick. I'd verify that cable is connected and set properly before anything else.

Edit: After rereading your post, I'd find/install an AODE tranny and that will end your troubles. You can't mess with electronics in these cars. The computer is looking for the tranny and will do funny stuff till it finds one.

probably not... since the 94 has no provisions to connect a TV cable

So the OP is running a AOD with no TV cable ? Yikes, "69shelby", I wouldn't drive the car this way if I were you. You'll be replacing that tranny again shortly.

On a side note, in my edit in my post, I recommended pulling the AOD and finding an AODE. What parameters does the SN computers read from a AODE ? I'm assuming nothing that would cause the ECM to cut spark or fuel off at his 30 - 40 MPH range. Just curious as I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer.
