Question about 1989 Ford Bronco
First of all, too much fluid WILL NOT harm your trans. I am not sure what you mean by "hesitation" but if a delay into gear, or a slip is a better description then adding fluid is not going to fix it. Your trans is known as an A4LD and though they were quite durable for their size, like everything else mechanical, they don't last forever. First of all, check the fluid. Not just the level, but the condition. Is it brown or even black? Does it smell burnt? If you answered yes to either, then you likely need an overhaul. If the fluid is still red, or pink, then you may have a faulty modulator or vacuum source to it, or the governor may be sticking. My 20 plus years of overhauling these units tells me that when you added the new fluid, the detergents in it went to work flushing out debris from where it had rested for years, then sent it directly to the governor. And once the governor stuck, the trans quit shifting. Sorry, but it sounds as though you need an overhaul.
