Can anybody diagnose this problem?

Home  \  Domestic Cars  \  Can anybody diagnose this problem?

I got an '87 Ford Bronco II. 2.9 V6, automatic transmission, 2wd. Everytime I shift into gear, I get this big 'clunk' and it goes forward or back pretty hard everytime. I'vefound that I just need new transmission mounts to remedy that. But I got this gheto problem.
I can't get it to shift out of first gear. I have to let off the gas to get it to shift. It really sucks on hills. I don't know why it just won't shift smoothly. My friend says I just need a new speed control sensor. I'm just curious what else it could be before I go out and buy this sensor.
Anybody have any ideas?
Thanks, Jaxx
