Hey Scoob! over here!!

Hey,

Friend of mine named something like Scoobydoo is going to sign up in a few minutes and has questions about his AOD slipping intermittently. It's in a Mazda truck and may be missing tv cable. I don't know. I'm sure someone here can help him.

I made this post so if he had trouble after signing up, making a new post that he could find me here. Thanks

KKnow what Scoob? You need to start a new thread under this trans rear end thing. Because I unwittingly named the thread "Hey Scoob over here"............................................. .................. No one's going to pay attention to that... We'll be here waiting for days for an AOD guy. Need to name it "AOD HELP" or something like that. You can see at the bottom that it's just you and me on here..
If you can't figure out how to start a new thread call me and i'll help..
Also I sent you a PM

Ford AOD problems... Slipping Not Shifting Right

So Scoob Put an AOD in his MAZDA pickup and my understanding is that it's slipping intermittently and and won't shift without manually putting it in the gear you want.

I don't think he has a TV cable on it? Needs a ford Transmission guy.

I POSTED FOR HIM BECAUSE I'M NOT SURE HE FOUND THE NEW THREAD BUTTON.

He just signed up today...welcome Scoob

I merged your other thread together with the discussion on the AOD.

There is a mention of the TV not hooked up on the AOD.

This connection from the trans to the throttle at the carb / EFI on the engine MUST be hooked up and calibrated correctly. Chances are the trans is burned up already.

The AOD hook up of the Throttle valve linkage is far more critical than a 700r4 GM trans

I thought so but wanted him to hear it from an expert. I really appreciate your efforts on the new member's thread. I'm sure he'll enjoy the forum. watchatinkboutdatScoob?

Running a Ford AOD without a TV cable is giving it a death sentence,it can fry the 3-4 pack within the first 10 minutes(if it isn't already) DO NOT run it until you get that taken care of.Here are the two best sites to help you: www.becontrols.com/tech/tech.htm and www.clickclickracing.com I suggest you read,read and more read the info there before posting a question on the sites you will learn plenty!

Welcome to hotrodders scoobyfdoo, it's great to meet ya. You will need that tv cable in order to get the aod to shift correctly. Sadly it is one of those things that ford incorporated into their transmission's in order for them to shift correctly. Many a mustang has had their transmissions removed because the tranny's started slipping, only to find out the tv cable was out of whack.

Here is a link to my website where i wrote a how to on adjusting the tv cable: http://www.insanemustangs.com/forums/15513-post4.html

Hope a link is okay? I am not using the link for anything other then helping a member of hotrodders.
