Firstly when was the trans last serviced (fluid and filter change)? If you dont know do that first. After that make sure to perform a throttle calibration to ensure gears change smoothly and when they are meant to (do a search on here to find out the procedure). If after all that it is still changing hard its normally the Damper soleniod (S5) which is a very expensive part, anywhere between $170 (reconditioned) and $460 (new from Ford) Thats the part only.

Is it taking a while to change into gear? As sexyr6 said it sounds like a solenoid. Mums Subaru Liberty is having the same trouble. Its really annoying to drive like this..

Cheers, Nathan
