Re: to drive er no...
Something is screwy with the wiring to the trans, this trans is electronic and needs the correct control unit and wiring harness, I think the problem is in the wiring to the trans, it may no be the correct connector, the shell of the connector may fit the trans but the wires in the connector are in the wrong positions.

Most computer controlled transmissions have what is called a pressure control solenoid. IF there is a problem in the transmission the computer may try to compensate by increasing pressure.
Also when a PC solenoid is bad it defaults to high pressure.
The 3rd gear neutralize is probably the reason for the high pressure. The longer you let it go the more damage that will be done to the transmission. If the vehicle is worth it, pay to get it fixed. It is a lot cheaper than buying a newer vehicle, and when you have your own car you know what it is.
A similar type of thinking goes into diagnosing car trouble. ... response issue, but after shifting into gear the engine's RPMs will surge, but the car won't move ..... Can anyone please explain why my car cant go in reverse but can drive forward
well could be two things. either your transmission has crapped out on you. or you have a shifter linkage issue. which means when the car is in park its not really in park. try this. move the shifter and see if the car moves in a different gear then what it says it is in . so if it moves in neutral it could be drive and reverse is neutral. if it does not reverse at all. time for a new trany is my guess.
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.
i had the same problem, its the torque converter. I took my 05 c/a in because i was having shifting problem, the long and short of it is there is a breather on the tranmission that sucks in water from the road. the water and the atf dont mix. the dealer put in a torque converter and changed the fluid and installed a redesigned transmission breather.
