2001 windstar trans issue help!

Now I have a 2001 ford Windstar with 178,000 miles, the van ran great no problems. Well about 2 weeks ago it developed a problem with slamming while shifting. When you put it into drive it will slam in to gear, (feels like the motor is jerking the van, just jerks forward). the other issue is when driving when this first happened if you were in 4th and around 40 to 60 and accelerated but not enough to down shift she would jerk and lunge (you have to force it to down shift). Now she jerks and what not when she down shifts and some times up shifting, it feels like the motor is shaking.

Well I replaced the motor mount it was a hydraulic mount, the top was cracked and the fluid leaked out, I replaced it with a solid mount. While I was there I looked at the CV axle and the joints are fine but I can wiggle the axle and it moves around at the trans hub. I drove it and I still have the same problem. Slamming and lunging when the gears change, the trans fluid is full. just wanted to know if you had any ideas mabey its could be a shifting solenoid or something. Well thanks for your time

Autozone will pull codes for free. That might give you an idea on what's up. I think Advanced auto parts does too.

What kind of scanner do you have? Can you check data with it? Or did you have it checked somewhere?
