Thanks, I can't wait till I get out of school so I can go take a look at it!! and I'm going to ohm it out too and see if it's going bad or anything yet and inspect it for cracks.

When the coil pack went bad on my '01 you could easily see a crack but I recently had to replace the coil pack on my '02 and it showed no visible cracks or issues so even if you don't see anything wrong with it don't rule it out.

Ohming it out will tell you virtually nothing, as the ohmmeter doesnt put the coils under the 20 kV stress they see in operation. If you replace the coil pack, use only The Motorcraft or BWD (Borg Warner) unit. Cheap aftermarket ones are just that.... cheap junk.

^^^^+1 I ohmed out the coil pack in the pics I attached and it showed perfect. Not saying the coil is the issue but if you have cracks you will be destine to have issues. It was my cause on what I though was a convertor lock up issue.

Just the verbage alone, "chugged" ,makes me feel like it's not the tranny. The ax4s has more problems than the ax4n

UPDATE!!
Turns out that the PCV elbow was cracked all over... and I replaced the elbow and the PCV valve and she is running a lot better and able to shift at 5k rpm again. it does hickup a little however but I see that its still spitting oil out a little on the hose that goes from the elbow to the PCV valve so I'm going to buy more hose all that rubber was rock hard!! Problem fixed!! All that sucktion at high rpm was making it lea cause it had enough sucktion to pull air through the cracks at low rpm it did has as much sucktion to pull the air through.. YYYAAAYYY!!!

Your manifold vacuum is low at wide open throttle. Highest at idle or going down hill with throttle closed.
