1992 Ford F-250.
Question = Upon take off from a dead stop, my Automatic transmission will give a lurch and a clunk
and go into the next gear. It never happens when driving, just on take off, and then, only sometimes.
Tranny guy told me to change fluid and filter and check for broken springs from looking up into
bottom of transmission. He said that Ford shifting springs, though powerful, would at times break and
make the sound and act the way I described to him. He said it could be repaired from the bottom of
the tranny without removal.
Does that sound like the correct solution? And if so, where can I purchase the springs? Mechanic
also that the one, original spring, is usually replaced with two springs (one inside the other) to give a
smother shift. Thanks for any help.
Answer: You can buy a transmission master rebuild kit for about $189.00 that will have all the parts.
You don't really need that though and a spring is a spring so find the broken one and go to the
dealer and buy a spring and replace it. This dual spring setup is an update that Ford has for this
condition.I would check the motor mounts first though as a broken motor mount will give you the

I replace thermostat and antifreeze.
Question: no heat at all flush coolant system flush heater core and nothing. A/C seems to be running
all the time even when knob points to heat?
A flush of the heater core does not always get the gunk out. You need to feel both heater hoses
where they go into the heater core under the hood. See if they are hot. If so, you might have a
temperature door problem in the dash not moving to the hot position. This is a common thing with the
type of system that has electric motors that control the temperature doors.
