dont use just any tranny fluid....i believe ford puts in a (lifetime) syntheic on the crown vic line thats what you have to use in the trannys or it wears them out in a hurry but check your fluid level and check around the transmission pan for leakeage maby try a bottle of stop leak or visit you local mechanic

You need to address the leak, (gasket, cooling line, etc) which might explain your shifting issue, as low fluid might contribute to your problem. Have a trans shop or a good mechanic check it out.
