Hi Pro, I'm very interested is this because some of what you experienced has happened to me. Keep us posted. Thanks

Dave


Hi Bad Boss 302: I trust this post finds you well. Well, as it turns out today begins Round 1 with my local Ford dealer. Here is how it went down.

1. Customer reports Transmission Oil Leak, Correction: Tighten Oil Drain Plug.
2. Clunk sound from Clutch - Low speed below 10 MPH - No Problem Found
3. 1-2 and 2-3 shift grinds when cold, improves after driven 20 miles. - No Problem Found
4. No second gear when shifted above 4,000 RPM - No Problem Found

Results:
1. Drove car home, parked in garage, checked paper on floor under car within 10 minutes, found oil spot on paper the size of a DINNER PLATE. It as actually worse now!
2. Still have the clunk sound with clutch, demonstrated problem to technician, he said oh, that, it's ugh, ugh NORMAL - But this noise only developed within the last 100 miles.
3. Shift grinds - Still grinds when cold and did so on the way home. TSB to change oil not performed because, No problem found
4. No second gear, I could not shift that high to test it as I don't want to run a car that I am not sure of.

Conclusion:
The dealer service department performed poorly in this repair attempt and at this point has nothing to do with the product issues I have experienced. The dealer will have two more repair attempts. It is a shame how some people have absolutely no pride in their workmanship. I will schedule the dealers second repair attempt tomorrow. This time I will schedule the appointment with the Service Manager and if necessary will go up the chain. It is a shame to be told, "no problem found" as I can replicate each complaint with a test drive.

I will keep you posted - All the best - Hi Pro

Mine behaves the same way minus the leak. 2 and 3 clunck-in like I have poor synchs. 5th is always rough. It's sad such a great car has such a poor transmission.

MT82 Transmission oil leak update:

Spoke with the Service Director today, the new plan is to return the Boss to the dealership on Thursday. He will reassign to a new technician. I will post the results of the Dealer's repair attempt #2 when the car is returned. I checked the cardboard under the car this evening and guess what? More oil, leak is now dripping on cardboard in 4 different locations.

Sure seems strange to me that a manual transmission would have this kind of oil leak. I should find out soon, but after my first service experience, I am keeping my fingers crossed. All the Best - Hi Pro

A different intake, a different throttle body, different exhaust headers and exhaust system, a different drive shaft, a different shifter and some suspension stuff as well... and something else I almost forgot, different injectors to run other fuels.

Hi Pro

Greetings. Sorry to hear all the crap you're going through with the dealer. Is that the only dealer around and have they sold and serviced other Boss 302's or even Shelby's? Sometimes it really pays off If you can find a dealer that has more experience with hi-po cars. The leak thing is bugging me. By any chance have you been able to get under the car with a flash light? I'm wondering if you had the fluid change TSB. If you did then the person who serviced it might have over filled it. That could cause fluid to be pushed out the rear seal. With the engine off can you shift into all the gears?

Oops, just read you post again and see the TSB for the fluid change was not done. So when you wind out 1st gear over 4000 rpm you cannot get 2nd gear at all? When you installed your shifter was there anything to adjust under the boot? Or possibly something came loose. That fluid leak really bugs me. The leaking fluid, is slightly transparent or black like used motor oil?

When you go back on Thursday, get the service manager to drive it while you ride shotgun.
Good luck and take care.
Dave

Bad Boss 302:

Thank you for your post, it is nice to discuss this issue with a fellow Boss owner. The dealer, does not sell many Hi Po cars, they have had a Red/White Shelby on the showroom floor for the last 6 months and my Boss was only the 1 of 2 Boss 302's the dealership sold. I do have to say this dealer does have a great sales department with a professional staff.

I did ask about the TSB for transmission oil change at time of write up, but the service adviser refused to even write my request on the WRO. I did not push the issue at that time. Had I known about the dealership poor service department, I would have taken the car to a Ford Racing certified dealership about a half hour away from me and started my repair history there, but now I have to stay with this dealer and give them a chance. I checked their CSI scores, and although not the best, they were not hateful, in the top 85% of their district/zone.

Yes, I had the car on the lift to check for the source of the clunk sound when the clutch pedal is depressed at low speeds, (under 10 mph). Then I found the leak. The leak itself is from the left side, (driver side) and is coming from the top 1/3 part of the transmission. Even with a drop light I could not see the source of the leak as the trans tunnel gets close, up towards the top of the trans. There are no leaks from the usual sources, rear main seal, front main seal, case plugs, speedo, etc. The oil is light in color and looks like engine oil that was just changed, it is clear. The car has 731 miles and the engine oil is OK, slightly darker in color. I am lucky as my engine has no oil consumption issues. I have been checking that since new and the engine has only used a thumb nail of oil on the dip stick.

As for the MGW shifter install, I thought something was coming loose, but all is well, I removed the heat shield and insulation, checked the mount, and checked the shift rod to the rear of the trans, no leaks at the trans shift rod seal. The bushings are MGW shift rod bushings are properly installed, and the rear support is tight.

I thought at first that the trans may have been overfilled and perhaps oil was coming out a vent tube (if equipped), so I checked the trans fill plug located mid trans, right side. This is a 5/16 Allen wrench plug, when I remove the plug, no oil drip out, and the hole is too small to fit your little finger, so I carefully dipped the Allen wrench in the hole, about 1-1/8" but the wrench came out dry. So I am worried about possible lack of lubrication issues now. Note: I still can't believe that the service director wants me to drive the car, knowing that I told him the transmission is still leaking oil. Today I will speak with him again and request that the car is towed in.

Yes, the shifter can be shifted through all the gears, engine off, clutch depressed. This is when you feel the MGW difference. As far as adjustments under the boot, there are no adjustments, the MGW unit is designed for a straight up install replacing the factory unit.

Thanks again for your post and questions, it is good to talk about this issue. I agree with you, this leak really bugs me too. There should not be too many sources of the leak and they should be able to ID the source very easily, or one would think. I requested the Service Director to ride with me to demo the issues, but guess what? He refused, saying "Oh I'm not the right person for that". Makes me wonder, you know what they say, leadership starts at the top! I will post up once the Boss is returned. Oh by the way, I have to think of a name for her, what do you call your Boss? - Best Regards - Hi Pro

Drag strip and an off road X pipe and catback is worth 15-20hp on the best day, so that's not "quite a bit." These transmissions SHOULD NOT be failing with bolt on mods and drag radials.

Do we have any specs as to what the MT82 is rated? I've been reading in many of the mags that hp has been pumped to over 800 hp on the Boss. Haven't read about any tranny problems. Seems that an after market shifter solves most all the problems. I think Ford needs to reassure all Boss owners that this is a good tranny. I'm going to hold off for a while on my list of hp raising mods until the dust re-settles.

RaceRat, you're going with a automatic this time?

Hi Pro, I named my Boss the Pumpkin (comp orange). I have a sonic blue 2004 Focus SVT that I call the Grape. So when I stop by the coffee shop in the morning they ask me if I'm in the Pumpkin or the Grape.

If you have been following my post about the MT82 transmission problems in my car, I would like to share my thoughts with you. I have studied this as thoroughly as I could to the extent of my available references. I find that reported problems with MT82 transmission shift grind, 1-2 and 2-3 shift and some issues reported with fifth gear have been isolated to only a small percentage of MT82 Transmissions. Some of the materials I have read stated percentages as low as only 3%.

So, please do not make any assumptions that my problems are wide spread, I happen to believe issues with these transmission are limited to only a small percentage of transmissions produced. I do not know what percentage, but a small percent. I also believe that these problems are repairable. The transmission a only a mechanical device and with the right technician, the right knowledge, tools and parts, I'm confident that my transmission problems will be resolved.

As I have stated in an earlier post, after my first failed repair attempt, this has now became more of a dealer problem than a product problem. So please don't despair, chances are that with proper maintenance, care and responsible driving your MT82 transmission will provide you with many many miles of trouble free driving. It took me a long time to figure out what a great car the Mustang had become, and I have to tell you, I still think my Boss 302 Mustang, is one of the greatest muscle cars ever built.

Yes, I still have Boss Fever! and if that ever changes, trust me, I will let you all know.

Best Regards,
Hi Pro

Perhaps the leak is due to a defect in workmanship and/or material. Your supposition that I cracked the case is a presumptuous statement. - Hi Pro

I am just wondering outloud. SORRY. I was just going to the next step.You said there were no apparent leaks from normal culprit areas.(that you could see) I would be using a mirror and bright lights.Just a suggestion.You were under there already. This is the kind of stuff I just can't wait to hear about the outcome.This forum seems more honest than others. I hate it when I get interested and don't find out the truth ASAP. Some people become very secretive when the going gets rough.I AM NOT giving a supposition,nor trying to be presumptuous.This is just how I act... a little analytical. Beleive me , I am not hanging with you guys to just ruffle feathers. I have an inquiring mind too.

Just like sometimes it takes someone to get killed, before a guardrail is put in place at a dangerous area.
