Had a similar problem and it just ended up being the sensor for the EVAP controls.  Stupid I know but it fixed the rough idle. Error code was P1443. Worth a try.

Does it idle fine? Sounds like a vacuum leak.

SOURCE: 1989 ford ranger automatic transmission

Your truck has a A4LD transmission. The older ones had major problems. What i believe is happening with yours is the converter is locking up intermittently. 1st-4th are actual gears for 5th(overdrive) the converter locks. I had the same problem as well as did alot of people I spoke with. I solved it by getting a used A4LD out of a '92 ranger with a 3.0L motor (these transmissions had some upgrades to deal with a number of problems including the one you are talking about.) You will need to swap bell-housings (this requires the pump to be shimmed properly,I paid a shop $100 to install the pump ,with is attached to the back of the bell-housing) There are only 2 kinds of A4LD one for floor shift and 1 for column shift,make sure you get the right one.Good luck.

What is making my van skip at 50 mph

By skip I guess you mean engine develops a miss? Could be many things. Dirty fuel filter, bad plug wires, plugs, clogged catalytic converter, bad muffler, bad fuel pressure regulator, bad fuel pump, etc

I have had problems on the same truck with the throttle position sensor. I works just like a volume knob on a radio. When it stats to go bad, it will skip over the bad spots. It is located on the side of your throttle body and has 2-3 torx head bolts holding it on. They were $50 new, $100 to have a shop do it.

Missing at low speed 1999 town car

Hello,I am Ron,I will try to help you.Ford ,Lincoln,and Mercury,seem to have to have a tight ignition system to run properly.In the text,tight,I mean like,a distributor,rotor,plug wires,and spark plugs, that are not worn,or aged in the sense,that the ignition does not jump,or skip fire to the cylinders.Have a major tune up done on your car and see if that does the trick.If you need more assistance,please let me know.
