Question about 1995 Ford Explorer
If this is in forward gears only, you could be looking at a forward clutch assembly issue. First thing to do is verify your fluid level, is it low or is it at the correct level.
Depending upon milage, has the fluid and filter been changed? Fluid and filter should be changed every 50,000 miles of service. If this is a high milage vehicle and has not had the fluid changed, start with draining off 4 quarts of transmission fluid and replenish with 4 new quarts of the recommended Ford tranmission fluid then drive the vehicle for 200 miles or so. The object of this is to slowly introduce the fresh oil and additives back into the high milage transmission and not "shock" it too much.
Transmission fluid never looses its ability to lubricate, but the additives that keep the seals and clutch plates in good condition do wear out.
After the 200 miles of refresh, remove the pan, drain all the fluid including the torgue convertor and radiator cooler, replace the filter and pan, refill transmission with the appropriate Ford transmission fluid.
If the forward clutch plates are not worn out, you should start to see an improvement after the 200 mile refresh. If you do not see any improvement, we will have to look further.
Good luck, let me know how it works out.
