Transmission-Problem Warning Signs

The sooner you can identify an issue with your Mustang’s transmission, the easier the repair will be. Some warning signs commonly seen when a 1986 Mustang’s transmission is damaged include:

• Dragging clutch (manual) or slipping gears (auto): Transmission problems will likely first become evident in your Mustang’s responsiveness. When gear changes become difficult, it’s likely a sign repairs are necessary.
• Refusing to go into gear: Trouble getting your Mustang into gear can be a result of low fluid levels or problems with your shift cable, clutch linkage or other components.
• Grinding: Gear grinding or jerkiness is not just a sign of poor driving technique, it could also indicate damage if the problem is persistent.
• Leaking: Leaking transmission fluid is one of the most common visual cues that something is wrong. ATF fluid should be checked periodically on all automatic Mustangs — healthy fluid will be clear and bright red. Be on the lookout for burning smells, too.

Properly diagnosing a transmission problem can be difficult. Transmissions are an incredible complex system consisting of hundreds of moveable parts. That being said, a transmission overhaul or other repair is still within the ability of any experienced and properly equipped hobbyist mechanic.
