Manual transmission grind

Be sure to depress the clutch to the floor when shifting. Sounds like you're wearing down your synchros for those gears. As far as solutions, the only actual solution is to get your transmission fixed. You can, however, "make it ride" a little longer by synchronizing the rpms yourself using the gas pedal.

96 taurus automatic does not shift properly

for the transmission to be acting like this, theres a good chance that you will need to flush out the transmission. over time and miles, the trans becomes contaminated with particles such as metal shavings from the movement within, and small particles that have gotten throughout the lines from radiator.
