Question about 1998 Ford Windstar
The transmission fluid level is not dropping. it was leaking befor but we put the lucas stop leak in it and it worked, now during every take off it jerks real hard. its not making any sounds or grinding but it slips bad enough for the van to red line........ the transmission starts slipping at around 2000 RPM's or at around 30 MPH.... between 30 MPH and 65 MPH it does just fine but gitting to that point is an extream challange

usually the auto trans has a filter in the pan. if the filters clogged it cant get enough pressure to shift. i recommend a new filter and gasket. cork gaskets are way easier to install than rubber gaskets. coat the cork gasket with form-a- gasket, you dont have to use an extreme amount, just enough so the gasket sticks to the pan.

you need to replace the half shaft.if it continues to leak it will only get worse and you could end up losing the transmission

You might have a bad throttle position sensor that's going bad.You didn't say if you had a check engine light that's on or not.If there is then I would recommend that you have your local auto parts store retrieve the codes and and that will give you a better idea as to what the problem could be.Without actually being able to completely inspect all the necessary systems I would only be making a guess according the information that you provided to me.It sounds like a bad throttle position sensor
