HiCustomerthis is lostrider, here is the procedure, hope this helps.

Transmission Fluid Temperature (TFT) Sensor

  1. Remove the transmission fluid pan gasket and filter.
  2. Disconnect the transmission fluid temperature (TFT) sensor electrical connector.

  2. Install the transmission fluid filter, pan gasket and pan.
  1. CAUTION: The use of any other transmission fluid than specified can result in the transmission failing to operate in a normal manner or transmission failure.

    Fill the transmission.
    • Add 7.0 liters (7.5 qts) of clean automatic transmission fluid to the transmission through the fluid filler tube.
  1. Start the engine. Move the transmission range selector lever through all the gear ranges, checking for engagements.
  1. With the vehicle in NEUTRAL, engine running and the transmission at normal operating temperature 66-77°C (150-170°F), check and adjust the transmission fluid level, and check for any leaks. If fluid is needed, add fluid in increments of 0.24 liter (0.5 pint) until the correct level is achieved (fluid should be in the cross-hatched area of the fluid level indicator).

Expert:  lostrider replied 5 years ago.
This is straight from the Ford service manual for the Torque Shift transmission, and I have replaced allot of them for this concern, and that sounds like the problem you are having,
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I will try that as I am told that that may be the problem I sure hope it is as it is a large exspense if it does not fix the problem
