Question Ford ranger XLT 1989 transmission problem, Sweden

Hello and greetings from the Kingdom of Sweden!

You have to excuse my spelling, this is not my native language!

I bougth a Ford Ranger XLT 2,9 V6 1989 yesterday, It ran fine and went into the gears as it should(automatic with OD), first I noticed that when I braked hard the car almost died. Only when I were smooth and let off the gas pedal and braked soft(as we should drive normally) the car acted normal. THEN to the trouble that's pissing me off: My buddy tested the car, he never droved a automatic car with the shifter next to the wheel. I do not know what he does but the car won't get into gear in OD and D,1,2. Reverese works and the PARK works. should say that the cars is 4x4 but the previous owner had disconnected something(not the axels)so the car was driveable only with the rear wheels going. the buddy of mine had trying to get into 4x4 and low. Do not know if that's the problem or something else.

95% of the cars in Sweden is manually shifted so Im into deep water here guys, hope u can give me some clues about this.
