Simple Answer for My Question I\'m sure...

Hi all. I need some advice please, before I go to <nobr>Ford</nobr> with this, so I don't take the Big Q without enough lube... [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] What do you all think is wrong with my 1980 351 3-speed auto when I downshift it into 2nd at speed and there is a loud, fast, ticking noise for a second or two before it shifts into gear. Could this be related to the rattling (pea in a spray can sound) that comes from the bottom of the <nobr>truck</nobr> when I take my foot off the pedal at speed (over 30 mph)...? The truck drives fine, and everything seems to work, but with winter coming, I'd like to get it fixed now, before it craps out on me when it is really cold outside.

Thanks again everyone for your assistance!

Not so simple. You have entered the arena of automatic transmissions of which I know nothing. [img]images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] sorry.
