My 2001 Ford Taurus with almost 250,000 miles has started having issues with shifting. It acts like it doesn't want to accelerate and it revs up to about 3000 rpm and then it finally shifts. Once it shifts, it accelerates fine. I can't go up hills from a stop, the car won't go over 20 mph. Tyranny fluid is good. Any ideas?
