IIRC the Mt285 in the 06 and up Cooper s uses lower gearing. So that's always a plus! The transmission in the svt is touchy. Have you changed you fluid yet?? A little bit of a grind is not the end of the world.

No I haven't changed it yet, I have decided to just go that direction though. I would have had the trans fluid changed 2 weeks ago but I ain't trusting any off brand or anything besides Motorcraft, but no dealer is within hr and a half and I just don't have time to go.

A few years ago (and years, not months) there was a debate on the correct trans fluid vs 'my idea is better than the factory' fluid. This is not an "I told you so" but when anyone/everyone who must go through this trouble gets a rebuild done...this is why we should all use the correct rated and specified fluid. NOTE: I did not say correct "BRAND." I left links of a few different brands in the other thread. Let's not rehash an old argument but instead let's help each other do things right.

My first-hand experience with an early 90s Ranger wasn't a good one. I had one with a 5-speed. The original owner put in GL-5 because he knew is it was 'better' when it should have had GL-4 and the synchronizers eroded badly. I got it fixed then drove it close to 10 years. Some of you will think I'm arguing brand or Ford dealer purchased vs aftermarket - NOT the case here. I'm talking specification.

Start with checking the fluid level.
