This van has 222000 miles on it and is on its 3rd transmission< put in about 60,000 miles ago. The drive-train seems to lurch forward as the rest of the van trys to catch up on acceleration and as it shifts, could this be a mount? if not what else?

this whine you hear does it cause you to loose power if it does have you ever change the transmission filter and trany oil it is supposed to be changed every 60,000 miles you can change it your self its is simple but messy so dont do it in your drive way
First thing is to check the fluid level in the transmission, most vehicles have to be running at engine operating temp either in P or N, check your owners manual. Assuming your fluid is where it should be, that vehicle you have sorry to tell you are notorious for transmission failures, by what you described looks like your going to have to replace the trany or rebuild it, either way its not a cheap fix. My advise if the van is in really good condition put a used trany in it and trade it in for something else. You can look anywhere online about customer/ owner feed backs on 88-98 windstar vans and how bad the transmissions are on those Ford didn't get smart till 99 or 00 when they redisgned the drive train. If you keep driving it the way it is the trany will completely fail leaving you on the side of the road somewhere.
blown fuse is a sign of a problem of a bad elect. circuit,grounding wire,wires touching each other,pinched wires,corrosion in elect.connection,unless its a common problem it can be hard to find!seems theres no quick fix,maybe they should refer you to some one that specializes in car elect.problems.
It's in limp home mode. You'll have to check wire connections and electronic controls. If it has a vacuum modulator you can remove it and look for trans fluid on the vacuum hose side (meaning ruptured diaphram). Double check the parts you replaced as well, especially if they were used parts. My dad went through three speed sensors in one year on his Caravan. You should drop the pan after checking other components. It could be a bad relay, shorted module or wire. The three speed transmissions are much more reliable than the four speed overdrive transmissions but with age and miles things can go wrong and parts will wear out.
Sounds like your idle controll sensor, it most commonly looks like a spark plug, it plugs in to the side of the transmission, near the belle housing. But for now try a quart of lucas oil in your transmission, if that causes it to shift, then your bands are stretched, and most likely need a transmission.
