Odds are that it is going bad.Something is worn,hardened,or damaged if you have that symptom.Not unexpected on a car of that vintage,especially if it didn't see much transmission service in it's life.
Front wheel drive transmissions are expensive to deal with,probably not economic.
I recently replaced the transmission(the best way,with a dealer installed reman unit) in my 2002 Taurus wagon-the cost was more than 3k,but the rest of the car was in pretty good shape,and the car suits my purpose ideally.Time will tell if it was a worthwhile investment.
