Transmission Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer to work when others don't, I am here around lunch and after dinner till after midnight.
This is going to be the transmission range sensor or shift linkage out of adjustment to blame as the primary cause. Secondary would be faulty reverse clutch seals. Here are the shift cable adjustment steps. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/90220402/cableadjust.pdf If this is okay then TCM mechatronics replacement is needed do to the range sensor being integral to the TCM.
This is my 1st answer, but does not have to be my only answer. You the website and myself expect you to have a great experience with my help.

Follow up and reply as often and when needed, there is no extra charge to do so.
To check the reverse clutch seals you would remove the mechatronics unit and air test the reverse clutch I thought the TR sensor was separate as well. Been about 3 years since I was in this transaxle. I was looking at different year models with my Ford login and found the year I selected there is a misprint. Stating the TR sensor location incorrect. The TR sensor is serviceable outside of replacing the mechatronics.
Hello again Chris here,
No the TR would not cause these 2 new issues. This looks to be the mechatronic controlling the variators incorrect and not getting the chain to run at the correct ratio. Still no transaxle trouble codes?
Thanks, ***** ***** so and keep in contact before the post times out.
Go into the best detail you can on the rpm concerns and i will try to come up with a plan.
