2000 Ford Focus Automatic Transmission Problem

Hey all I'm new to this forum and also new to owing a Focus! Anyway I'm hoping to find out any info on my transmission problem ..maybe it's common or someone has had the same issues. Well I have a 00 Focus SE with about 145,000 miles on it. When I put it in drive or reverse my car lunges/jerks real hard...seems worse when its cold and most noticeable in reverse. It acts as if someone puts a car in neutral, revs it up and pops it in drive! Well today I took a few tries to get reverse to work. Runs and drives great and seems to shift fine while driving. I have no check engine light or OD light flashing(which my F350 has flashing). Any help would be greatly appropriated!

Yeah that was my first thought as well. They looked fine, and with the problem mainly when its colder im thinking its a transmission or shift linkage issue. The fluid level is normal and clean but I plan to drop the pan and put a new filter and fluid in and see if it helps.
