Trans slipping Sign In

Last week I purchased a used 94 Thunderbird with 57,700 miles on it. The car is clean and was never in an accident. I purchased it from a new car dealership where I used to work that was a trade in. My best friend is a sales manager there. I had another car that the overdrive just went and got rid of that for this. The Thunderbird looks and drives like new.

Now I purchased it last week and the car was fine. I was off from work for a few days and just drove the car locally. Now I took it to work today and while driving on the highway the trans was slipping in and out of overdrive. It happened about 2 times going to work, on the way home it happened again. I had a Cougar a couple years ago either a 96 or 98 and the trans would always slip in and out of overdrive. The trans on that was replaced twice and still did the same thing. Come to find out it was a module or sensor in or on the trans (I don't remember exactly).

Anyone have a ideas, comments or suggestions of what I can do to fix this. I don't have a problem putting in another trans if I need to but that would be my last resort if possible. With such low miles and paying next to nothing for it, it would be well worth it.
