My car leaps backward when it goes into reverse gear. on 2004 Ford Explorer

This happens intermittently but has been is most frequent on start up when car is parked in driveway on slight hill. Ford wants to install a new transmission solenoid body, but I fear that this will not solve the problem. The cost to do the repair is $370. In addition, we have a leaking powers steering pump and leaking coolant gasket. Total bill for all repair comes in at $1930. Is it worth it?
