I am a ford tech and once this transmission starts slipping in OD u are going to need an overhaul, changing the fluid won't correct the problem.

2004 After about a mile of road travel, why does transmission begin to slip?

Usually a transmission slipping isn't due to the drive shaft, but the transmission itself. I know this might sound a like a crazy question, but have you checked the transmission fluid levels, could be a leak, if not full would cause slippage.

Reving up when in gear driving

check your trans fluid, if its been a while flush it and change the filter if its reving and your speed doesnt change (slipping) if your speed changes check the TPS and speed sensors on the trans as well when you change fluid.

Automatic trans slips 92 ford explorer

I would have the transmission check if you plan on keeping the car a long time. The lucas oil is an additive for the oil. The additive is making the fluid a little heavier and tricking the soleniods or clutch and bands with a different pressures.

This is a temporary fix. The transmission over time is going to start to slip more and more.
