1987 Taurus Shifting problem

Just picked up a 87 taurus with 250,000km and it seems to have a shifting problem. Transmission was apparently rebuilt not too long ago so here is the prob.

Driving like a maniak, it'll shift pretty damn good; but when driven like a senior citizen, it'll shift into 2nd from 1st and just kinda... 'not go into gear'. I'll be able to rev the engine, let off the gas and than it'll go into gear. No explanation for it.

So in conclusion... I heard that there is this "plastic cog" under some plate on the tranny's. If this is true, would this cause this scenario? How do I locate this 'cog'

When the shift lever is in drive/1st etc etc... I hear a vacuum leak inside of the steering colum. There vacuum diagrams around here?
