Change the Transmission Fluid and filter. If you see no improvement, take it to a transmission shop. We had a similar problem, and it ended up being a sensor in the transmission. I have a 1998 v6 which started to do the same thing. I was told by the transmission shop this is not an uncommon problem with Ford products. We replaced sensors, servo, solenoid, etc., problem kept coming back. Last time it was a valve body repair. It's still doing it. Next step is a new tranny - more likely I'm gonna trade it in for a new Honda. Good luck!
