I have 2 questions about my 1989 Ford Bronco II...

To start off my truck is a 1989 Ford Bronco II XL 2.9L V6 Automatic

1st) When my engine gets warm it feels like it's shifting up then shifting down, what could be the problem?
2nd) My gas gauge always reads full until it starts getting closer to empty then it starts going down slowly, like it normally should, what could be the problem here?

1.) First thing's first - check the level and condition of your tranny fluid.

2.) Your sending unit could be getting worn out or your float could be hanging up.

If you are experience hard transmission shifts, it is possible that the only problem is a low transmission fluid level. Low transmission fluid level can change the operating pressures of the transmission as well as reduce the amount of lubricant present between the clutches and bands and raise transmission temperatures. All these things can cause hard or jerky shifting. You need to identify why the transmission has a low fluid level and refill it as soon as possible.
