Sounds like your trans needs some help. Are you looking for a used transmission, rebuild or new? A used one from a salvage yard will be in the hundreds, a rebuild one, $1500-$2500, and a new one $3k or more. Are you installing or having someone else do it? Not really worth replacing/fixing if your Ford is a '83 IMO.
