May help it by doing a pan drop and change the filter and fluid.

With a hundred and forty thousand miles and never been serviced b4 don't touch it wrong move fix what needs to be fixed . I did a tranny on a Bonniville with high miles that never was serviced with in a month the tranny blew. Any smart honest mechanic will tell you not to touch it or else your hit believe me or not your choice?????

What is the fix for the tranny shifting hard after 20 to 30 minutes driving after it seems to get hot????

I'm not sure. I had an earlier Taurus that did the same thing. Took it to a trans shop & had the fluid & filter changed. That didn't help at all. Now I have a 2005 that does the same thing. What I've noticed is that it only does it when up to operating temp. Not when cold. My next move is to have a trans cooler installed. I'll let you know if it works.
