1998 Ford Mustang Q&A
1998 Ford Mustang Question: How do I rebuild or replace the automatic transmission valve body?
1998 mustang is going up to 3000 rpm before it'll shift out of 1st gear.I'm told to replace or rebuild the trans valve body. Can u help with procedure? - Visitor
the valve body is extremely complicated for the average person. do not reccomend you attempting this procedure unless you have expierence at this repair. you could cause more damage to the trans. did you have the trans checked by a shop?? it may not even be the valve body. shifting on todays automatics is controlled by the tps in the motor. that is where i would start before talking about the trans.

Very Carefully. If this is your first time, don't do it. Contamination is a transmissions worst enemy and you are not set up to do it properly........ take it from a veteran Ford transmission specialist. Secondly, Why are you replacing the valve body? If it has a problem, something else caused it. Third, where did you get the replacement? How do you know the replacement is any better than the one that you want to remove? - Visitor
