Question about 1999 Ford Econoline
130000mi van suddenly after 1/2 block seems to go in neutral. will not go forward or back. Shut it off start it up and it goes a little bit again then does the same thing. Not as if it slips more like neutral. Also small rattle near converter area of trans????
These transmissions will not function properly if they don't have Mercon V in their transmissions. If any other type of ATF was added, it may gel in the tranny pan creating a lack of engagement, followed by a rhythmic vibration/rattle. Try flushing the tranny

I had the same problem in my 96 f-350. The transmission has slipped recording a slip code in the transmission. You can pull the codes and get it. I shifts into a safe mode that increases the pressure inside your transmission as part od a fail safe. Plain and simple, you have to have the tranny rebuilt.

SOURCE: AOD trans wont shift when cold
Ok I have no Idea who told you not to change the fluid? However there is a reason you have to drop the pan to drain it, or change filter and the reason for this is. So you cant just change fuild and leave dirty filter in, or change filter and leave dirty oil in. Your wouldnt just change one or another on your motor would you? lol Anywho your problem is either burnt fuild. Yes the fuild can be come burnt and lose it vascoity, and weight. (basicly your runing gravey through it.) lol Or the fuild is termendously dirty strained or not. FYI there are clutches in your transmission.... Have you ever heard of clutch dust? Well in an automatic because of the fuild its not clutch mud..... explaining why when its cold and the oil is super thick it has problems, but when it thins up when its warm its fine.
CHANGE YOUR FLUID & FLITER

If you went 1k miles since that same issue occurred I would look at the transmission. A faulty torque converter, clogged fuel filter, or a clogged CAT can cause a delay in the shifting but it would happen right away not 1k miles later.
