You said trans fluid was a not too bad which can also mean it's not to good. Try changing the trans oil it and put a filter kit through as can get the filter and sump gasket for under $20 now. Wifes EF had a similar problem and being a Ghia had no dip stick so gave it a oil change and filter and had all gears again. Car had done 220K's then. Now has 330K and still good. My 97 DL 302 started doing lazy changes when cold at 440K. As a 302 (sorry 4.9) they have a dip stick. Oil was a dark red so cooked a little bit but not burnt. Changed oil and filter and no more lazy changes when cold. DL now has 513K on the clock. Could be cheap fix for the price of oil & filter kit. Good luck with it.
