Question about 1996 Ford Thunderbird LX
This transmission 4R70W needs an aftermarket, enlarged, oil cooler to work - an very well known problem in this model
If one is not fitted the oil overheats and the valves controlling the gear shifting literally seize - practically blocking all oil circulation and cutting the power to the transmission. This also severely damages it, dramatically reducing the life of the tranny.
Make sure the cooler is correctly installed, the oil is in the correct quantity and that it was correctly installed.
