2000 Windstar-Transmission Problem

My Windstar recently began having transmission troubles. Especially at high speeds, it feels like I am going over a rumble strip. It only lasts for a second and it does not always do it. I cannot reliable
make it happen. My dealership stated I needed a new or rebuilt tramission but could not tell me what exactly the problem was. Has anyone else had a similar experience?

You got that right (about the extended warranty).
I didn't get one, and we just had to have the transmission replaced in our 1999 Windstar with less than 40K miles on it. I know of three other friends who had to have their Windstar transmissions replaced also (various years).
Next time, I'll get the extended warranty. Oh wait - there won't be a next time for Ford with me...

I also have the same problem on my 1996 Windstar. It's funny how you say it feels like your riding over rumble strips, because that is the exact feeling you get. I've just changed the transmission fluid and it seems like it hasn't gotten any worse, and I'm crossing my fingers and hoping it doesnt crap out on me one day.
