Could be the pump starting to fail, my experience with Taurus's is once they start having tranny problems, replace the tranny.

oh no, please dont say the pump is going, tennisshoes, it has to be something easy and cheap!!! Besides, wont it leak a little if the pump goes???

That all depends on what is going on inside the pump, they only leak if the front seal get messed up. Those transmissions are very weak right from the start. If you have any kind of problem of dropping gears or slipping during shifts it's best to just repalce it, or as with most older Taurus's and Sables just sold for parts or scrapped, they aren't worth fixing.
