Transmission problem
2005 Ford Explorer 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 69000 miles

My SporTrac has recently had a sort of skip in the transmission while driving and I am unable to pinpoint exactly when it happens. Just kind of random. The has also been a slight rattling/vibration in the dash near the gauges on the left of the steering wheel that I didn't know if it had anything to do with the other problem?

Please help!
