Ok, My tranny died over a year ago now and I had it replaced in January. The guy that did it said it would shift tight for a while. It still does it, but only when the car isn't warm. It also has trouble shifting from 1-2 when I don't give it enough gas. Should I be worried?

When you say it has trouble, do you mean it won't shift? If so, I think your throttle valve cable may need adjusting. (I'm assuming you're talking about the car in the avatar).

An improperly adjusted TV cable (no not that kind
) will cause hard shifting, late shifting, basically a whole bunch of problems that would make you think the trans is about to take a Southern vacation.

That car has an AXOD-E Bob. The last year for the AXOD was 90'.

If the transmission shifts ok when it's cold, you can rule out sensors. It looks like it may be slipping again.

It's about time they start putting some balls into something other than the Mustang. After they killed the SHO.... I don't know what they were thinking.

Some people are too ignorant of Ford flaws. Thats why I wouldn't be suprised when 50% of my student body either thinks a Pinto is a performance car or a bean. :D
