frown '97 full size Ford transmission slipping - help?

Howdy folks!

I've been driving Grand Marquis's for many years now, and I've started my second 100K on my '97.

After taking care of the intake manifold (grrr), some front end work and a coupla window regulators it appears I'm ready to start on the transmission.

Under a heavy load last week (I figure around 1/2 - 3/4 ton - I've got cargo coils) it slipped pulling away from a light.

Now its' slurred a little, stuck a little, been a little dumb and slow to downshift, but as a long term full size Ford owner I've come to expect such things. But the slipping...

and I can feel the difference and occasionally a "little" slip now and then. I believe it is getting worse.

So the crux of the biscuit: how hard is it going to be to change this thing? I've grown up as a backyard mechanic, changed some turbo 350 GM trannys and a good number of smaller FWDs, and know some are a darnsite easier to change than others.

And many repairs have a trick or two to them, and maybe a specialty tool. Any advice?

Thanks,

Pete

Sad little orphan post.

I'm just going to go for it. If I find anything unusual I'll post it.
