I have a 1986 f150 with a 301 v8 engine
and RTS T170 manual transmission
. The transmission was recently reconstructed and is been working perfect since 3 months ago. Now the transmission won't stay in 2nd gear when I let the gas off. There's no strange noises and that's the only gear that spits out and only when I let the gas off. Someone told me that is because the fluid is cheap.
JA: How many miles on the car? Is it the original transmission?
Customer: yes, its original with 175,000 miles
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
JA: Great! What have you tried so far?
Customer: Yes I will fix it myself if the solution is simple
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Ford Mechanic should know about your Ford?
Customer: No that's it
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Ford Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
