    that is correct the tps does control kick down and aids in trans shifting so that could be it iwould try another because when water gets in it causes corrosion in the sensor

There is a trans. vacuum shift modulator on the side of the trany.. Look for a vacuum line going to it.. 90% of the time your problem is caused by it going out. Unscrew it and replace after you have checked for vac leaks in line and at connector. Car would run rough if you had a simple vac leak. Hope this helps mike.

If you know for a fact you have no vac leaks, the next step would be to check the idle air control valve. It should be mounted in the throttle body. It could be stuck open.
The computer controls idle speed by regulating air flow into the throttle body.
The throttle plate could also be stuck open. An eighth of an inch would do it. Make sure the throttle and cruise control cables are not pulling on the throttle plate.
Vac leaks could include the PCV valve and the EGR valve.

The high idle could be causing the noise - or it could have a vac leak. I would check the computer for trouble codes first.
Could have a faulty O2 sensor or map sensor - depending on that possible vac leak.

I have a 1998 Ford Windstar it has a very rough idle and when driviing it has a problem shifting and when it does it tries to run very fast. We thought it was a fuel problem we ran fuel injector cleaner...

It sounds to me like you have a vaccume leak. Look for disconected vacume hoses. Listen for a hissing / sucking sound in the engine compartment. Also Check that the big air intake tubes are all securly in place. If everyting seems OK , then I would suspect the mass air flow sensor is kaput.

Trans makes rattleing noise when its in any gear rev. and drive ,it quits whe put back in park or neu

It sounds like the trany is on it's way out. It might be the torque converter. At any rate the trany will probably have to come out. Does the trany seem to work good, shifts good, no slipping? There is another posibility it could be a loose heat shield on the exhaust pipe rattling. Have some one you can trust check it out.
