hesitation doesn't necessarily mean you need a new tranny. The AODE is generally worth at LEAST 150,000 miles with the 4.6L. I've never heard of one failing with a 3.8L! You can find low mileage trannys at salvage yards for around 400 dollars, but I REALLY doubt anything's wrong with your tranny.

With your miles, I'd try a tune up 1st, including cleaning the MAF with computer contact cleaner.

Take the car to a Ford Dealer. It needs a tune up at 100,000 miles anyway.

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17
