Ok, first off, what trans did Ford put in a 1994 V6 auto? Is it an AODE?

Second question:

The shifting on this car seems to be a bit sluggish. If I shift from park to reverse or park to drive and sometimes even between drive and reverse, it seems like it takes a full second or so for the gear to actually engage. Sometimes I have to be really careful to make sure I don't put my foot on the gas too quickly or else I'll catch it before the gear is engaged. Is this normal? Are shift improvement kits of any benefit to these cars? I'm not looking to make a real speed machine out of this car but I would like the shifts to be crisp and I'd like to have the gears engage quicker than they are right now.

1) yes

2) Sounds like the trans is having issues, what color is the fluid, how does it smell ???
