Have you checked connections for looseness or corrosion? It's odd that a replacement solenoid worked for a while before the problem resurfaced, which makes me think that a connection was wiggled...

That's why he recommended having an AOD rebuilt with 4R70W parts. You get AOD simplicity with stronger, more modern internals.

You need to figure out what "hot" is before throwing anything else at the problem. For all you know, the car is running at a perfectly normal temperature.

Again, what "other things?" If you want suspension and brake parts, think again. The front end on your car is drastically different, and superior to anything on a pre-'05 Mustang.

Doable, but not the best donor car.

I'd recommend an 89-93 as a donor. The intake is a bit different, and I'm under the impression the sn95 intake won't clear your hood and/or cowl supports. The...

I cruise at ~3200rpm @ 70 :) 3.25's and a toploader with 24" tires. It's a bit loud and only gets about 14mpg, but it works.

I started off with a 3sp and 2.79's. Cruised great on the freeway, but was always a dog off the line.

I changed to 3.25's after the 331 build and noticed a huge difference in acceleration. Cruise...

I'm looking at 16" or 17" Torque Thrust D's. I prefer 16", but that diameter puts the rim right next to the UCA ball joint. 17" clears the ball joint, allowing you to run wider rims with more...
