Question about 1966 Ford Mustang
It makes a wierd sound in low gear, second is like nutrile till your at a crawl speed, and when i hook the vacume line up it shifts in and out of gear
Either your vacuum modulator is bad or your band inside the tranny is bad. Check for plugged catalytic convertor also. May need to have the tranny rebuilt. Make sure you have good vacuum to the trans vacuum modulator.

SOURCE: I have a ford mustang
ok, you may not like this, but it happened to me on a 01 mustang i was working on in my shop. It came in with engine noise, and after solving the noise on testdrive i experienced the same thing. It ended up being the torque converter, which ofcourse is inside the bell housing. Once the new converter was installed and filled it solved the problem. Also look at the dipstick, in park running when warm, inspect the fluid. smell it. does it smell burnt? is the color a bright transparent red? or is it a dingy maroon? you may be able to do a transmission service (filter and gaskit) and be ok.

if the shifter is loose and sloppy feeling then the shift cable bracket has come loose under the dash at the steering wheel. remove the lower panel under the steering wheel so you can see under the dash then get flash light and look while jiggling the shifter. you should be able to see the cable and bracket. if the bracket is loose then tighten the bolts. note this bracket is at the steering colum.

most likely the shift tube bushings are bad- you may have also lost a few screws in the shift tube or they could just be loose. you have to pull the steernig column down to inspect/repair it.

I had the same issue last year. Tore into the shift and found a cable that goes into a brake pedal interlock way up under the dash. This was worn down and was not working. I took it apart and decided being able to leave my garage was more important than having the brake interlock. Works fine without it!
