Question about 2000 Ford Mustang

1 Answer

V6 automatic to v6 standard

Id like to switch my 99 ford mustang 3.8L auto to a 3.8l standard. Ive heard that the slot is theie under my dash for the cluch pedal but theres no hole in the fire wall yet. i also hear that if i make it a standard then its a slave cyclender. would just a walk through of what i would need in materials and step by step instructions. i know this is alot but to me its worth it to convert this mustang rather than trading it in to get the same but in standard. thanks to anyone who helps me out. e-mail is ck49ers@live.com

Hi There CK49ers,
What you'll need is a replacement manual box. Choose the one that you'llk enjoy the most....Four speed or five....You'll also need to make sure that the box comes with the clutch master and slave cylinders....Go to a breakers yard and find a clutch and brake pedal....The brake pedal in the auto is much wider than will able to be used in the manual....I'm not very sure with your vehicle but you may need to check the starter motor fixing position. make sure that the CPU will be suitable for manual and if not, you'll have to replace that too.... When you're ready for more help let us know, and we'll be here for you.

Best regards

  • forgot to tell you yesterday...you'll also need to check the prop shaft of the manual and if needs be, you'll have to replace that and maybe the gearbox cross member too....said This is not an easy half hour job....



    As you originaly said in your email.....the bulk head fire wall is usually fitted with the required 'panel sections'....Sometimes you'll find that you need to cut the panels and other times you may find that the panels are glued in and all you'll need do, is pry the covers from the holes they cover....

I was driving on the road when the starter engaged and burn out, I replaced the starter motor, starter relay, and ignition switch. turned the key and starter stays on. had to disconnect battery to stop it....


Hello, There are small wires that attach to the Starter Relay. These are the wires Mechanics call "tickler" wires. There should not be power going through the tickler wire unless the Ignition switch is turned to the START position.

Disconnect the small wire off of the Starter Relay. Leave it off and put your battery cable on the Battery. The Starter should not crank. The Ignition should be OFF.

Now we need to find out where the tickler wire is getting power from. Put a Multimeter or test light on the Tickler wire for POS and ground the other wire on the tester to a NEG ground. I suspect your problem is in the Interlock switch. The Interlock switch would be on the Clutch pedal lever under the dash for a standard shift.

If you had an Automatic transmission, the Interlock would be in the shift linkage or Brake pedal lever. Without changing from an Auto to a Standard trans people have trouble hitting the under dash Interlock switch with their shoes getting in and out of their cars. Even while driving you can hit the under-dash switches with your shoes.

So check under the dash for a broken or dislocated switch on the Clutch or Brake pedal levers. Then move the switches until the Test equipment shows the power is not going to the Tickler
wire . Once you do this you have to make the START position work on the Ignition switch. Leave the tickler hooked up to the test equipment until you get the wiring right. You may have to adjust the Ignition shift-rod in the steering column so that START means the correct thing only in the start position.

I hope my solution is very helpful in giving you ideas about fixing your car.

Have 99 ford ranger 4.0 v6 4x4 automatic. the shifter will not budge when I try to shift gears. what could be the problem?


under the dash if you look, press the brake with your hand, you will see a button that the brake petal pushes against, that unlocks the shifter, either that switch needs replaced, or you linkage is froze up.

check your fuses. I expect its one of you main uses located under he hood. You also have another fuse box under the dash in the drivers side footwell. Check all the fuses and if any are broken and replace if necessary. Further electrical problems will likely need to be diagnosed by a shop.

93 LX 5.0 Mustang, new fuel pump, rotor, and cap turns over well,


do u have spark? also the switch may be the cause of that as well, the switch is located at the bottom of the steering column near the top of the column, here is a picture, it is very cheap to buy, the two halves of the switch separate and cause the loss of electrical to the car.

Does the 3.0l transmission fit on the 4.0l engine


Hiya,

There are 5 automatic transmissions used in the Ford Ranger, Explorer and Mountaineer. They may be identified by checking the transmission code on the Safety Standard Certification Label attached to the driver's side door post, in the space marked Trans. The transmissions can also be identified by a tag attached to the lower left hand extension attaching bolt. The transmission codes are as follows:
  • 1991–94 code T is for the A4LD transmission
  • 1995–99 code T is for the 4R44E (2.3L, 2.5L & 3.0L) or 4R55E (4.0L) transmission
  • 1996–99 code U is for the 4R70W (5.0L) transmission
  • 1997–99 code D is for the 5R55E (5-speed automatic) transmission
So, what you need to do now is...establish from a FORD workshop, whether both the A4LD and 4R55E transmissions share the same components and mounting dimensions.

Cheers,

Scott
