if its automatic there is no bolt, pull the trans stick and shove a funnel in the tube, make sure its the trans stick u pull and not the oil, also the vehicle should be running when u add, after u top it off run it through all the gears, 5 secs in each gear, so park, reverse, nuetral, drive, 2, 1, then do it again on the way back up to park, then check the fluid again....this is automatic correct? let me know how it goes

If you have never done this before,it may be best to take the truck to a shop or have some one with experience help you. You will need the truck up far enough to take out the transmission. The linkage and drive shaft has to be removed,then unbolt the transmission from the bell housing.Special tools may be needed to pull and replace the seal.
Transmission fluid needs to be changed since it is a brownish color.

Your truck has a A4LD transmission. The older ones had major problems. What i believe is happening with yours is the converter is locking up intermittently. 1st-4th are actual gears for 5th(overdrive) the converter locks. I had the same problem as well as did alot of people I spoke with. I solved it by getting a used A4LD out of a '92 ranger with a 3.0L motor (these transmissions had some upgrades to deal with a number of problems including the one you are talking about.) You will need to swap bell-housings (this requires the pump to be shimmed properly,I paid a shop $100 to install the pump ,with is attached to the back of the bell-housing) There are only 2 kinds of A4LD one for floor shift and 1 for column shift,make sure you get the right one.Good luck.
