See my answer to post by dwood1542 on 2/6/09 for 1998 Taurus. It could be the VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor). The same thing happened on my 1998. The VSS drives the speedometer and tells the electronic transmission how fast the car is going. So, if you are moving and it happens, look at your speedometer. If the speedometer goes to zero, its the VSS. P500 and P502 codes may be stored in OBD-II.

Check the transmission fluid first. it sounds like one of the clutch plates is sticking.
If you shift into second after you've stopped, can you get the car moving?
