Question about 1988 Ford F 150
1988 Ford F150 truck. When I start it up and drive it, it shifts from first to second no problem. Then shifts to third ( I can feel it) but the engine seems to race. It will do this for about two miles and then it settles down. It sounds like the clutch fan is continuoisly spinning but I know the engine is reving. It is not slipping either. Can you help
That sounds like a complicated issue. Is it a manual transmission??
You might buy a chiltons repair manual for the vehicle as I can't see anyone being of any use on here without being able to actually look at it. I could be wrong though. Good luck anyhow!
Let me know what type of transmission it is and I'll ask my friend he's a real mechanic.
Actually ask him yourself email info[at]establishedauto[dot]com his name is Gino.
I'm just "good with autos"
