First off, have you changed your trans fluid lately. sounds like you need a trans flush. when you drop the trans pan and replace the filter and fluid you only get 3 to 4 quarts of transfluid. your trans holdt 12 to 15 quarts. so have it flushed completely cost $80 tp $120 but beats buying a new or rebuilt trans. always make sure you have the right amount of trans fluid. underfilling will cause lose of pressure and not shift properly. over filling a trans will cause over pressure and cause worse problems.

Manually shift thru all gears up & down the scale. Try adding Motorcraft Additive Friction Modifier, available from Ford parts dept. This REALLY STINKS!!! Don't get any on you. Pour into trans fluid. Drive a few miles shifting manually thruthe gears, then do a normal start stop drive several times. This will luburcate trans, normally used for differential but has worked in automatic transmissions of all makes for years. Otherwise mechanical problem for transmission repair facility.

Trans doesnt like reverse

That is a good trans - damn near bullet proof, change the fluid and filter and replace it with B&M trick shift or ((Hurst Hot Shift fluid)) these fluids preserve the bands and gives firm shifts instead of the lazy slip into gears , you will notice a really big difference in the efficiency of the trans and nice shifts as well - only need to change whats in thew pan, also while you are under there check your linkage because sometimes it needs re adjusted (adjust on the thing that is a round cylindrical thing with a bolt on the side - your shift rod goes through this) have a partner get in ((after)) you loosen the bolt and have them put the needle on the dash centered on the (P) - retighten

possibly due to low trans fluid pressure. the cooler in the radiator may be plugged. to check, disconnect and bypass cooler with rubber line & clamps. drive 2-3 miles. shifting OK now? install auxillary cooler to bypass one in radiator. you can get one at auto-zone $30-$50. may just need fluid & filter change, but more likely it's the cooler. when they get plugged, either one, pressure drops alot.
