Default 2002 Focus tranny problems

have a 2002 Ford focus (Kid hauler) and yesterday my wife says " The car is acting funny it reves really high when it shifts"

So I go hmm strange I take her for a test drive and it shifts fine .... untill it has to go into OD

It will shift fine till then but then its like putting it into neutral untill the car slows down enough for the tranny to be in 3rd gear

If I turn off OD using the button on the side of the shifter the car runs and drives fine just no OD

I checked out the oil level in the trans with the engine running on a level surface (pulled it into the shop at work) it was down a little bit but not below the low mark so I topped it up just in case but it still does the same thing

any body have any thoughts or ideas what should I check next

Figures I just find the tranny that I need for my Jeep and the trans in my wifes car goes for a shit hopefully this is somthing stoopid and easy so that I dont have to pass up on the jeep tranny cause I can only afford one or the other
