Some of the Ford transmissions actually have an aluminum gear which will go out somewhere around 150 to 200 thousand miles. OR it could be really low on transmission fluid.

SOURCE: Whinning noise in steering & 'clunk' from transmission.

I believe the "gizmo" your referring to would be the pump. Ford power steering pumps will get noisy if they have been run dry at one time. Be sure the fluid level is full and you have no leaks. If no leaks and fluid is full, but noise persists then replacing the pump would be your next course. Some pumps are louder than others, so don't be surprised if the new pump may have a little whine as well.
Transmission clunk can be caused by loose mounts, drive line components (axles, cv joints) or internal transmission issue. Flushing the transmission will not cure a transmission clunk. I don't know of any additives that will cure a transmission clunk as well. Have the transmission check out before you invest money in additives and flushes. Hope this helps. Please leave feedback.

Very common on this make and model trans, pump drive splines inside torque converter strip out and pump is not turning, Most times there is no damage to pump shaft. Remove trans and remove torque converter, inspect the splines at the very bottom of the hub hole. If stripped out inspected pump shaft splines which are the smaller center splines coming out of trans, if ok replace torque converter and re-install trans, change out fluid, clean any metal from magnet and replace filter, fill with fluid and verify proper operation.

sounds like a large vacuum hose was knocked off the engine when they pulled the trans out, have that checked.
