Hello,

 

I have ran into that exact same problem before, and then replacing the case fixed the problem, you may have just lost 3-4th from the first and then the new trans did the same from a tweeked trans case, either way good up to 550hp I would want to see in writting and what parts he put into it as well.

 

I had the exact same problem in our 2003 mustang.

 

You may want to use another trans shop.

 

What kind of convertor did you put into it and did you put a new one in with the new trans as most trans shops require that to be done as well.

 

Thanks,

Joe

Torque Converter Limted Time Only??????????

 

That part confuses me, did they send you a new one?

 

I am worried about the case are you sure they did not use yours like you received the new one and then shipped yours back to them as a core or did they require you to ship your old to them first?

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
THEY DID NOT REQUIRE A CORE. I STILL HAVE THE LAST ONE I TOOK OUT. IN THE BEGINING THEY GAVE ME A NEW T-CONVERTER BUT AFTER SENDING THEM BACK THERE TRANS THEY TOLD ME TO JUST PUT THE T-CONVERTER THEY SENT ME NEW BACK IN IT AFTER THEY SAID THEY REPAIRED THE 3RD 4TH CUTCHES.
Expert:  Joe replied 5 years ago.
I am thinking you may just have gotten a bad case from them.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I HAVE DONE A LOT OF RESEARCH AND I HAVE FOUND THAT THIS VEHICLE IS WHAT THEY CALL A TRANSITION VEHICLE. LATE 94 AND 95 WAS WHEN THEY WERE MAKING THE OBD2 STANDARD. MY CAR IS ONE THAT HAS AN OBD1 COMPUTER WITH AN OBD2 PLUG. I HAVE NOT COME ACROSS A SCANNER THAT WILL SCAN THIS CAR. THE LOCAL TRANS SHOP SAYS THEY UNDERSTAND THE ISSUE AND HAVE THE PROPER SCANNER TO CHECK THE CODES. THE CAR IS THERE NOW. I DROPPED IT OFF TONIGHT SO WHEN HE GETS TO IT WELL KNOW EXACTLY WHATS UP. IT COULD BE AS SIMPLE AS A RELAY. BUT I DOUBT IT. ANYWAY WITH OUT SOME MORE DATA WHERE ALL JUST GUESSING. ILL LET YOU KNOW HOW THIS GOES.
