Question about 1990 Ford Econoline
Adjustment of the shift linkage
If your problem is similar to the one I had, you need to look under the dash, above the steering column, there are 2 T45 torx head screws up there which can loosen. I was able to get a mechanic to do the tightening, took him 2-3 minutes, he knew right where to go. I have not had to re-tighten them, since then I have replaced the shift cable so I got a good look at those screws, it is not that difficult if you can get your head in there, you might need a flashlight.

can you drop your steering wheel it should be 2 bolts and from there you should be able to see where the cable connects to the back of the shift linkage , should be held on with a 10 mm bolt or torx screw

It is either the speed sensor, the wireing in between ot the speedometer module it self. The sensor sends pulse train signal to the speedometer module and there it drives the speedometer and is divided in frequency by about 7 and feed to the computer and the cruise control. When the signal drops the Engine management computer thinks the speed is real slow and raises the transmission pressure.
In the one I had it was a cold solder jooint on the bacjk of the speedometer module itself but this was the divided output and the speedometer itself still worked. The easyest part would be the sensor that mounts on the rear axile I believe and should cost less than 30.00 dollars. If not that thebn it's the wiring or the speedometer module electronics..

Solenoid or shifting governor. I am aware of a governor on the passenger side of that tranny. It has like a coat hanger type lock over it. It just pulls out once you get the cap off. Let me know if you can't find it.

More than likely the shift indicator is broken. It has a small retainer that is held to the steering column that breaks and throws the indicator out of alignment. In some instances (rare) the tube and guide that are on the top of the steering column break or become loose.
