First thing you need to do is have the codes read, Autozone does it free, Post the results with the code number(s). Even if the service engine light is not on, there should be freeze frame data stored.
If it won't make it to Autozone, buy a cheap scanner, they can be had for 30-40 dollars, a good investment, since they cover all cars sold in the USA from 96 on.
If you come up with a P0741 or P0744, your tranny may have the wrong parts in it right from the factory, there is a Technical Service Bulliten on 96-03

TSB Reference # 03-12-3 Call Ford to have it checked! If you have different codes post em here so we can have a look!
