So it sounds like you either have a pressure problem inside the tranny, it could be a number of things, filter plugged, front pump, internal seals going bad, plugged shift solenoids. As far as a automatic rolling backwards on a hill when in a forward gear, they will do it cause the torque converter is below stall speed, so there is not enough power being transmitted to the transmission via the torque converter, it is not good for the tranny to let it roll backwards.

2005 Ford Crown Victoria does NOT have a clutch. Sounds like the transmission has a problem.
