#78 of 151 1996 Mustang V6 Auto Slipping

1996 3.8 V6 Ford Mustang transmission slipping.
I have a 1996 3.8 V6 automatic Mustang with somewhere around 150,000 miles on it. Today it was 8 deg outside and I started the car and headed down the road. Well it started searching for gears and would shift up and down the spectrum.
Then it would kick out of gear or slip (not sure) then start searching for gears again. I never had a problem with this transmission till today. Do you have any ideas?

Wait until the temps go up or put it in the garage to warm up and see if it still happens. Something could have frozen temporarily.

Ok im seriously about to **** a brick my brand new gt is 3 months old with 8,000 miles and out of no where my trany deff took a ****. i took my car in for an its second oil change at my ford dealership yesterday at 1 everything was fine. i drove the car home and a couple times that evening. today I left my girlfriends house get out of the development and its fine get on the main road shift 1 through 5 no problem . . . then all the sudden as im coming to the light down the road like 1/2 a mile i hear a weird whistling noise(thats the closest description i got) i try to downshift to 2nd while slowing down . . . . i cant shift out of 5th!!!! so i stop at the light with clutch depressed and turn the car off. i finally manage to force it out of 5th with car off into neutral only i can only move the shifter side to side and up i cant go into 3rd 4th or reverse. so i turn car back on and force into first pull away it makes weird grinding noises but i can drive and i shift into 3rd same thing weird grinding noise but works. i still cant get into 3rd or 4th at all. i try shifting into 5th it goes but as soon as i let out clutch it just revs up like in neutral. so i had to drive all the way home using 1st and 3rd thankfully not extremely far. DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY IDEA WHAT HAPPENED TO MY CAR!!!!!???? of course this happens on a Sunday when the dealerships closed

look at my postings,the 07 i had and the 08,both 5 speeds and both of them problems,ford is ,(i think) not telling the truth.also i notice my stearing was off center, the rt door is off center,gt emblem is off center and the rear bumper is off some,and over spray on my gas lid.and the odomator was reading 5 mph to fast.hum,well they reset the toll and said nothing was wrong with the odomator,but it was reading different after i left,for the bodie stuff they say it was a factory thing,and would strighten it out for me.sounds to me like its been fixed.but i bought it and the other one as a new car.and i also hear noise in the drivetrain from time to time.

My friend has a 2006 Mustang GT with 43K, bought it brand new and now auto trans. is slipping bad. He's had vehicle serviced regularly by the dealer but did not extend his warranty. '06's are all Lemons, so much for the S-197...
#83 of 151 2010 manual transmission whining/whistling noise.

The manual transmission on my new mustang is very noisey at best, but when driving on the freeway for a while in 4th and 5th it starts this high pitch whistling noise, the head mechanic at the dealers heard it too and agreed there was something wrong, the manager decided to change the transmission without even letting the mechanic even look at it.
Got the car back and they said it was fixed.....and guess what it is still there and even worse, anyone else had this issue?

Did you get this sorted out, read my post about my new 2010 mustang, the same whistling sound after a few miles in 4th and 5th, they changed the transmission without even looking at it, and its even worse now.
Let me know asap.

You need to take the car back to the dealer and ask them to install 2 dampers that eliminate the whining sound. The bolt on the rear differential allowing to absorb the noise coming from the rear axles.

Probably fell off the truck, my '06 probably did when i got me from the dealer, I saw that the L/F gap between the hood was more and the other side left. 2 years later I barely rear ended a guy and the paint on the bumper just chipped and flaked off. My body man told me the car had been hit before, problem is how can you prove it once you drive away from the dealer?
