Default 95 xlt auto having hard shifts from 1st to 2nd gear.heeeeeelp!!!!!!!!

I recently got a 95 Ranger 4.0 xlt auto with about 180000 miles on it. the truck was well maintained by its previous owner and runs very smooth.the only problem I have is with the transmission shifts.everytime i shift from park to drive,the truck jerks very hard and also found that 1st to 2nd gear shifts are very harsh especially when crusing at low speeds.when i start off fast the revs will go way up before it shifts to 2nd and 3rd gear respectively.i checked the trans fluid level and its all ok and all other fluids are good very frustrated at this point cos i cant think of getting a new tranny right now,cos am broke.if anyone has any solutions to this please help me out.thanx
