Question about 2004 Ford Freestar
Time to check the transmission fluid. Pull the transmission oil stick and see if the fluid is red or brown. In fact see if you have any fluid on the stick up or near the line. You may have to change the transmission fluid by putting the car on jack stands, putting an oil pan and newspapers under the transmission and removing the first the tranmission oil stick holder and draining the fluid. Next use a rachet and socket of remove the bolts to the transmission fluid oil pan and finish draining the fluid. Next remove and clean the gasket area on the bottom of the transmission and transmission fluid pan. Be sure to note if there is metal at the bottom of the fluid pan. If so you may need a transmission overhaul if not clean the bottom of the fluid pan. Next remove and replace the screen and O ring and tighten bolts.
Install a new gasket on the pan and install putting bolts on pan tightening a little bit at a time until torqued properly to specifications. Refill fluid down the stick holder until full. Now with the parking brake set and the car in park rev the engine at fast idle without racing it and shift through all the gears and back to park. Check fluid level and look for leaks. Good Luck

How easily dies the shifter move? if it feels as if there is no pressure, then possibly the cable is broken. have you had the fluid level checked? maybe there is a leak you are unaware of.
