I'm assuming this is a Ford AOD? (the clutch slipping issue is why I'm asking...)

If this is an AOD:

First, make sure the fluid level is correct (a little over full is better than having too little).
Second, be sure the TV pressure (throttle valve) is set correctly with a 0-60psi oil pressure gauge. Should be around 33psi with the gauge block inserted, or if you don't have one, set the pressure at 5psi at 1000rpm. If you don't have the gauge, you can use the "no slack" method to set the TV linkage.
Last, but not least... Here is an excellent website for assistance in diagnosing just about any Ford automatic tranny problem...

See I figured it was a manual because he said the clutch is slipping.

And I'm completely confused as to what it is. :confused:

Erratic shifting sounds like a AOD, but a slipping clutch makes me think M5R2.
