1997 Ford Thunderbird Transmission problem
When driving normally transmission surges like it is not in gear. Had sensors replaced, nitural safety switch, and still acts up.

Vapor lock cannot occur in a tank mounted fuel pump. The pump may be worn enough to lose it's pumping ability at high temperatures. Have you changed the fuel filter? Is the check engine light on? If so, rent a scanner, read the code(s) and follow them to repairs. What occurs when the temps reach 96 degrees?

It is likely that a relay has shorted or stuck in the on position. Look for a relay box or panel below or behind the glove compartment. There should be a few relays mounted there. You will probably be able to feel a relay that is clicking, and it may be warmer than the others. Remove the relay if you can feel the click. If the heater fan shuts off when the relay is removed, then a new relay is probably needed. If this does not solve the problem, the blower motor resistor is probably at fault. These are very trouble prone, esp. on mid-late 90's models. It may have shorted when the battery was replaced if the heater was on at the time and there was some arcing at the battery cables. This scenario could also cause the clicking relay. I suggest trying the relay first as it is much easier to service. You also might consider calling a Ford dealer to see if there are any recalls regarding the climate control system. I know there have been a few on other models from that year.

Testimonial: "Thank you very much. I will follow up with the dealer since there are several relays under there but I cannot isolate the faulty unit."
