I'm assuming you have an auto trans. Have you checked the trans fluid lately? If it's any color other than red and smells burnt, you got problems. That's the worst case. If the fluid is just low, add some and see if it helps. Wouldn't hurt to change the transmission filter as well.

as far as i know, it's just the way ford overdrives work. every car I've had with one (AOD, AODE, A4OD, AXOD, CD4E) has done that... so to me it would be normal...

Milky in the engine oil means water got in there.

I imagine that milky in the trans means the same. Brown, instead of red does not bode well for ATF.

I wonder if you could have gotten a leak in the trans cooler (built into the radiator) and are getting water/coolent mixed into the trans fluid.

Don't have a clue how to check for it. But I am sure there are others here who do.
