I think he's spilled some kind of nasty carbonated beverage on his shifting console.
Beer or coke will mess them up. Generally, the shop will have to quickly replace the whole shift selecting mechanism and not have to mess with the transmission insides. It's easier to replace the whole assembly rather than trying to find the corrupted component. I know this much from experience.
That's the reward we get for having beverage holders located right next to that key piece of equipment.

I have a 2002 Ford Mustang v6 automatic, and I have been experiencing surging. My car chugs a little when I turn her on, and then is fine until about 30-45 mph she starts to surge. Once I get to 50 mph the surging ceases. What confuses me is that it does not surge every time I am around 30-45 mph, only when I am trying to hold a steady speed, not if I am purely accelerating (like getting on the freeway).

I am having the same problems on my 2011 mustang V6 coupe.
I noticed that if I deactivate the Traction control it seems to shift better
Also, if I drive aggressively the shifting seems tighter.
I'm now getting slipping when I punch it a little from a dead stop.(not good)
You mentioned a Chip to correct your problems. What chip were you
referring to? Is it a tuning chip?
Let me me know what it is, I might want to try it if Ford can't fix this problem.

Mine does the same thing once awhile. I noticed if I turn the traction control button off it stops and drives like normal. I think I might have it replaced? The light doesn't come on anymore, does yours?

There really isn't an "overdrive" per se - it's just 5th gear and there's no reason not to use it unless you're going up and down hills and causing it to constantly downshift to keep up.
