Typiclly this is caused by a failing Pressure Control Solenoid. Now in some cases, since you are in the 1996 model year you may have a vacuum modulator that controls the shift firmness that can be replaced as it is externally mounted. I dont know how best to describe what it looks like, but look down on your transmission, on the front side facing the radiator and if you see a canister like device that has a vacuum line running to it, that is the vacuum modulator and you could start by replacing that and see if it helps.
If you do not have the vacuum modulator and have instead the electronically controlled version of your transmission then you will have a Pressure Control Solenoid and it, unfortunately, is located on the inside of the transmission and cannot be easily replaced without dropping the whole transmission.
The pressure control solenoid is a common issue with your transmission (4T65) and Im leaning more towards you have the electronically controlled version (4T65E).

My 97 Jeep Grand Cherokee was doing the same thing. I changed the TPS ( Throttle Position Sensor) Now it is great goes into overdrive fine. It is really easy to change.

On a lot of vehicles there is a transmission speed sensor that receives data that tells it how fast the car is going and shifts accordingly. If this sensor is bad the transmission can't function properly. I would have this checked, they are not that terribly expensive, and not that hard to change on most vehicles. Hope this helps.

My daughter has a 2003 with the same problem. She took it to a highly regarded transmission shop. They told her it is not the transmisison but an engine performance problem. She took it for an oil change to check the filters etc and the fuel filter is bad. I will follow up if that fixes the problem.

It could be several things but I will give you a few ideas anyways to try and avoid the costly Ford dealer mechanics. Check your transmission fluid to make sure that it is full and that is still good and red. You may also want to just go ahead and change your transmission fluid but when you do so remove your transmission pan. Inside your transmission pan is your automatic transmission fluid filter screen. Make sure to clean it thoroughly and put back on filling the transmission with new fluid. Cleaning the screen is probably the most likely thing that will help. You also might want to consider using a transmission fluid additive that will help it shift easier. I've had pretty good luck with Lucas's products. Hope this helps. Be sure to let me know how it goes and if you need more help clarifying. Goodluck.
