IF the transmission is slipping when it shifts, I would say it's too late for changing the fluid. I have been in touch with many people who have had these trannies go out. I've had two that first starting slipping when they shifted from second to third gear.I'm in the process of taking one apart to see if I can learn what is causing it to fail. I wouldn't spend very much on an overhaul as they aren't worth it.
take it to authorized transmissions
i need to know where the speed sensor is in my mercury mystique so i can replace it.

These are sideways motors so the replacements of the motor mounts is not an easy job. I suggest that if you can not find them you should not try to replace them. There are two at the top of the motor at both ends. (near both fender wells. And then there are mounts on the transaxle. (transmission).
Shift solenoids are inside the transmission, and require disassembly of the transmission to replace.
Mercury Mystique with V6 engine has two oxygen sensors. First one located between radiator and engine, second - behind the engine, near the coil pack (below). It's not very difficult to replace them.

The easy way is to go to a marine supply house and purchase an engine oil suction pump.The hard way is to drop the transmission oil pan. If you do this you can change the minimal filter that is present. This is not recommended unless you have a lift and the proper tools including a transmission drain pan.
