Question about Ford Windstar
Hi, if the transmission has never been serviced I suspect a service now will likely make it worse. If it has been serviced previously a fluid change may help, or may push it over the edge and require a rebuild. You should have the codes checked to see if there is a trans code set, this can up pressures in the unit and cause a harsh shift also. Since that can be done free of charge at Autozone or similar parts places I would do that first. If it does have a code that will point a direction to go to repair it. Assuming no codes - check the fluid and if it is really dark or brown then I would leave it and wait until the trans gets worse. If it looks fairly a little dark then a fluid service might be an option.
