Question about 1990 Ford Escort
I have a 1990 ford escort pony 3spd automatic with 135,xxx on it. I am having a problem with shifting out of 1st gear from a complete stop. When I accelerate and the car is just about to shift out of first gear the engine will rev and then “jam” into gear. The only way I get it to shift somewhat normal is by releasing my foot off the accelerator and then reapplying it again to lessen the force of the gear switch. I’ve had the fluid changed and had the automatic shifter arm all looked at. What else could it be?
This could be a modulator. I think you had that in 1990 -- its good problem and relativly cheap. Hopefully the issue is not internal.
