so its a f-150? correct? then what you can try is the "transmission gear sensor" its on the transmission driver side if that is damaged replace it, if not check its alignment, (steps for alignment check for this sensor)1.you need to block the tires 2. put the vehicle in neutral 3. slide under it and look for the lines on it 4. loosen it line up the markers and tighten it. if problem continues check your transmission valves (really hard so start with the sensor) here to help -RTBBilly
