Sounds like a solenoid or the solenoid body causing the problem. Have seen a few of the solenoids go bad.

I've had that before. If you keep punching it while it's in delay the tranny won't last long and will start shifting hard.

you wouldn't be able to tell that the mercon sp LOOKS good or SMELLS a certain way. I thought I could until I saw it right next to fresh mercon sp. I had the EXACT same thing after unploading some dfuser tunes. Went stock, got better, went back to xtreme street and it slowly came back, got the tranny flushed by Marc using one of those machines and it instantly went away and started running almost 10degrees cooler. If you trust the tranny was serviced the right way at 40k then I would ask Eric for a new tune and hope that's it.

mine was doing the same thing. changed the fluid in the pan and the filters and now its like a whole new truck. still engages into reverse a little hard but the delay went away. i probably should have had it flushed and get all new fluid because there is no dust cover to drain the converter, just a rubber piece. damn chilton manual lied to me. also ended up buying 18 quarts of fluid when i only needed 8 or 9 quarts.

Mine was doing that shortly after I got it at 40k. At about 45k it started to stall the engine while stopped in drive. I had my wife take it in to Ford since I was overseas and by then it was already too late to repair. The tech mentioned solenoid problems but it had already caused too much damage. Also there had been no records of a service being done previously. The truck completely stock by the way.

well for starters, i have all the service and repair documents and it was definetly done at 40k. however im at 64k so it does have 24k on the fluid and ive been running the looney tune and erics extreme street for about maybe 5-6k. should i start with a tranny flush or send it right to ford. cause id have a tranny specialist do the flush.

I would definitely get the fluid and external filters swapped out...I do mine every 15k. I would also get the tranny checked for codes to see if you are having solenoid issues.
