I have the same car. So far no problems with the Transmision. I had the Trans oil change out every 60 K
Sure sounds like you need to get the Transmision checked. Is the fault light on. I have invested ina fault code reader sure is worth it.
Good luck. Vilmos

Mercury had a recall on 3.0 duratech motors in 2000 and 2001. If you get a fuel smell at startup then you might have a bad lower intake gasket, it could cause a miss if seal is cracked. Article No. 01-4-3 you can get it on AllData.
Also, check the PC rubber L piece that runs from the PVC valve to under the throttle control - it could be busted.
Make sure ignition wires are not cracked. If you haven't tuned it up in over 30-40K consider doing that.
