I used to rebuild these transmissions at Ford Dealerships and if they lost over drive I would have to remove them and repair them. You may try doing a fluid and filter change and adding a fluid conditioner to help free up any sticking shift valves, if that has not been done in awhile, but only if the transmission has less than 100k on it, other wise it can be too risky.
