Good Morning , I have Two of these cars .. Both had the same problem. I just removed the transmission oil pan and replaced the Filter. You have to replace the Transmission Fluid on these cars every year weather it looks clean or not . I think the fluid looses it ability to act as it should over time. But this little trick fixed BOTH of our Tempos and they both now have over 150,000 miles on them. PS make sure you replace your engine thermostat reguraly. they dont last too long either.
