Good afternoon, I hope you are doing great. My name is***** am a Ford technician and would be happy to assist you with this today.

How long has this issue been present? Did it just start?

This is a pretty common symptom of a low transmission fluid level, so let's check there first. There should be a red/black handled dipstick that will have the transmission level on it, check that and let me know what ya find
