1999 Ford Ranger • 225,000 miles

I exited the freeway today and the truck acted as if it was trying to take off in a higher gear than first. I replaced the transmission filter and fluid. When I drove it reverse gear did not work. It reversed but was very weak. With overdrive on it struggles to take off in first. If overdrive is off it runs fine but still reverse is weak. When overdrive is turned on it sounds as if the transmission is slipping.
