the solenoids in the trans may be sticking,try adding 1 pint of dot 3 brake fluid to the transmission fluid and drive it for a while-give it a chance to work..the brake fluid acts like a cleaner and it makes worn seals and clutches swell a little.just drive it easy for about 20-30 miles,its only about $3.00 and it could save a $1,600.00 rebuild

As your Auto transmission is fully electronic, it could be anything from faulty sensors sending incorrect signals to the trans computer, or faulty internal components. Your best bet is to have the trans computer scanned for 'fault codes' (as the computer monitors and retains all faults) by your local Ford dealership.
This process will identify the likely component/s which are causing this problem.
My guess is, there may be a problem with the 2nd clutch (yes that's right, automatics have internal clutches!), input and/or output shaft switches sending incorrect signals to the computer.
But, there could be so many other possibilities....so, I recommend you get the codes scanned and go from there.....

SOURCE: I have a 1993 f-250
When was last trans fluid & filter change? Should be done every 30k/3 years or sooner of you do any towing. I'd start there and get it flushed thoroughly.

Dude its likely an electrical problem, why are you so dismal? You shouldn't be so pessimistic and claim your being realistic, its bad for the health of everyone around you, and your proud negative views manifest into your reality and confirm your beliefs to be true so they are, but it doesn't have to be like that man. I understand quite a bit about vehicles and I bought it at a auction... I'm asking for help on which relay, module, ground, solenoid or whatever it likely would be, not a crash course in transmissions. Ideally I'm hoping for someone like myself to come around that had a similar problem and say what worked for them.
