This old could be first signs of total failure of the tranny. What does the fluid look like? Dark and smells burnt you have your answer.

If is transmission..does a 96 model have same transmission as the 2000 model

Transmissions are complicated devices. Rather than purchasing one which is 17 years old, even if it fits, is not a good investment. If it fails you've wasted the price of the old transmission plus any installation cost. I suggest you either have your transmission repaired or purchase one from Ford with years long warranty.
