confused park to reverse is rough

great web site. found this while goggle(ing-?) for belt/tensioner sqeal advice, R&R belt and tensioner no more squeaking.
figure I'm on a roll


my current issue is my 05 Taurus seams hard to shift from park to reverse (or straight down to drive), once in drive it has no issues or problems shifting.

I press sown on the brake pedal, release the parking brake and pull the shift out then pull down to what ever position (colum style). directly after selecting gear, i get a clunk and the front brakes groan, but then its ok.

i tried a search but I'm not sure i have my terminology correct, not much knowledge on auto trany.

ideas or proper links would be helpful and appreciated
thanks
dan

Re: park to reverse is rough

Do you mean that it make a clunk when put in any gear? Does it do the same if you have it in neutral for a short time and shift to drive or reverse? What about the idle. is it idling high.
