I had one of these cars and loved it - this is happening around 45 - 55 mph trying to go into overdrive, you have to change the fluid and filter, those tranny's MUST have their flud changed every 9-12000 miles, make sure you drain the torque converter as well when changing the fluid, the gasket on the pan is reuseable - replace the fluid with this mix - half B&M trick shift which helps preserve the bands and clutches and what not - the rest just use a good brand of DEX MERC, happy motoring

My 1993merc grand marquis 3 speed over drive tranny shudders shifting from 2nd to 3rd,fluid level is good overdrive off,would a fluid and filter change help?

I think you have a four speed electronic overdrive like my 94 merc.

I never had problems but I changed filter and fluid and added Lucas Oil Products - Transmission Additive 24 oz do not over fill.

Sloppy gear shifter on 94 ford e150 van how do i fix it

I can only hope it is not the same as a '94 car!
I just completed the repairs on a 94 Ford car, and on it, here is what we found.
The shift linkage is inside the steering column.
There are 2 black nylon/plastic bushings that wear out, and when they do, the shifting gets sloppy first, and then the silly thing falls apart, and you get stuck in gear!
You have to remove the steering wheel and the steering column to fix this, but it is not really hard to do so.
Be blessed as you find your answers.

Your symptons sound very similar to a security failure. The year vehicle is also notorious for this system failing. Do you notice a light on the dash that says SECURITY when this happens? If so, check out this link.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but it sounds like you either lost your torque converter or the forward seal on the tranny most likely do to an inner pump problem. All this adds up to a transmission rebuild unfortunately.

What year transmissions will fit in my 94 jimmy automatic

GM is notorious for one size fits all, so most any 4x4 transmission will fit. I would stick to close years that can provide the same style transmission, like 700r4 or 4L60, so the electrical just plugs in. Hope this helps.

Goes into neutral and then shifts hard into 1st on slowdown

It sounds like your input clutch seals are rolling. Is the check engine light on. It could also be the pressure control solenoid could be causing the problem aswell

Will a 92 4.0 Explorer motor fit in a 96?

They will fit 91-94 are pretty interchangable. You do have to take the computer with the motor.

Tranny swap

You need to also replace the underdash wiring harness with the 92 harness. You may also have to replace the instrument cluster with the 92 unit. The differences revolve around whehter or not the cluster has a tach and the DRAC unit(the flat white box velcroed under the glove box). The 92 DRAC has 7 jumpers in a row, whereas the 94 can have either two sets of 7 jumpers or 14 in a row(94-95 version).
Unless it has been updated, the 92 5-speed(MG5) may have not been the best choice as they were the series II. For 1993, Getrag came out with the series III which is a much better unit.
