Yes, your transmission fluid sounds like it wasn't changed regularly contributing to an internal shifting issue. The couger trans wasn't the strongest. Your going to have to have a mechanic/reputable tranmission shop, diagnose the issue. But it sounds like your going to be doing some major rework, because when something in the trans is worn or broken, a full rebuild is usually done costing close to $1500-$3K. depending on where you take it. Sorry.
