    Just replaced Tranny modulator, now i got shifting problems - HELP!

    I found where it was leaking, one of the pan bolts became really loose, tightened it up (and made sure the rest were tight) and it fixed the leak.

    Just replaced Tranny modulator, now i got shifting problems - HELP!

    DV8, which way did you turn yours? We adjusted mine clockwise and its doing the same thing still, should i try adjusting it the other way? Counter clockwise was for rough shifting, and clockwise was for soft shifting/slipping (which is what we adjusted mine to, its adjusted to the max 4 turns...

    Just replaced Tranny modulator, now i got shifting problems - HELP!

    Its not leaking into my engine oil, it was leaking into the vac hose and going to my intake I didnt clean the bore or vac hose before installing the new modulator. and Im pretty sure that my modulators non-adjustable. Would cleaning out the bore/ vac hose effect how the tranny shifts?

    Ok found the leak lol, its the modulator, although i couldnt get to it with all of the stuff in the way, i found the leak coming out of the vacuum hose where it meets all of the other vacuum hoses next to the manifold. I'll be installing a new one this weekend, thanks!

    1994 XLT 4x4. I'm losing transmission fluid.

    the only symptoms my trucks showing of a bad modulator is the dissapearing fluid, and my car shifts fine from gears 1-2, 2-3 etc and down shifts fine too. it only wont go into drive or reverse as a result of the low fluid, and when i refill it it works awesome again, could it still be the...
