I am having the same problems on my 2011 mustang V6 coupe.
I noticed that if I deactivate the Traction control it seems to shift better
Also, if I drive aggressively the shifting seems tighter.
I'm now getting slipping when I punch it a little from a dead stop.(not good)
You mentioned a Chip to correct your problems. What chip were you
referring to? Is it a tuning chip?
Let me me know what it is, I might want to try it if Ford can't fix this problem.

Mine does the same thing once awhile. I noticed if I turn the traction control button off it stops and drives like normal. I think I might have it replaced? The light doesn't come on anymore, does yours?

Mar 11, 2012 (5:53 pm)
I recently bought a 2002 v6 3.8l mustang with automatic transmission.
I am experiancing a jerking bucking motion in overdrive when trying to hold steady speed.
It aslo does it when at cruising speeds of 40mph and above when I take my foot off of the gas pedal.
I have put the following aditives in the tranmission....
lucas transmission treatment, bars leak transmission treatment, and shutter elimanator.
nothing has worked, can anyone please tell me what im looking at before i have it checked out by machanic.
please and thank you for reading

try not use your overdrive unless your driving on open road 55 speed and over.

There really isn't an "overdrive" per se - it's just 5th gear and there's no reason not to use it unless you're going up and down hills and causing it to constantly downshift to keep up.
#137 of 151 Noise in 2nd gear
Mar 30, 2012 (12:59 pm)
I have a 96 3.8 Mustang, 5 speed. Only in 2nd gear it has a rattle noise. If I let off the gas it goes away but gets louder with more acceleration. Has anyone else ran into this problem?

well sorry to say it but that's how the tranny start messing up and boom it fails. mine failed at 87000 miles started doing the same thing as your wife tranny. I got a junkyard tranny on mine now with 40000 on it now but its OK for now. i did put lucas antislip tranny lube and it did make my car shift better and made it last. I dont know if it was low or what but just have it refill. seem like if these tranny run a lil low they will hesitate to shift when they in park or cold. i had mine refilled and it worked better. i must have a leak because every other 4 months it starts again. wish i had a dipstick. American muscle sells PA fluid pan with dipstick conversion for under 400. its worth if you want to check your level and dont want to wait at the dealer for hours to have it refill :/ fyi those damn dealers suck

I know it's several months later but wanted to tell you thanks very much for he info. My 2011 GT automatic had been doing everything mentioned in your post. I googled the TSB, took it in to a Ford dealer with the printout and the Svc manager was already familiar with the issue. Left the car with them for a day, they got the parts late afternoon and I had it back that evening. Car shifts beautifully now, like new again. I have 18K miles and the bad shifting and hesitating seemed to have started at about 10K. It was definitely getting worse too. My gauge on that was my wife (her car) as she never notices anything but this was bad enough that she mentioned "I think there's something with my car..."
