A.Some torque convertors are "lock up" style, they have an electric switch to engage this. If this feature malfunctions then the car won't feel right. The cure is to have the mechanic unplug the switch[doesn't hurt anything if the convertor no longer locks]

B.Ford just doesn't make as good of an automatic transmission as GM. I have a Mustang with AOD. When it started acting up, I took it into Ford for a 16 quart tranny and convertor flush. Cost $139, but it flushed out microdirt particles which were making the car act funny. Now it shifts much more smoothly.

Hopefully A or B will help you.
