Neighbors truck

95 F150 302 e40d, Trans has intermittent issues, only happens once in a while, he said when driving the truck will slow, rpm's go up, as in kicking out of gear, shift a little erratically do it for a couple of miles, then clear up for a couple of months or so, and of course when I drive or am riding in the truck it runs good, truck had 85,000 easy orig. miles. Trans serviced less than 10,000 miles ago. I am thinking wiring, or solenoid hanging, not the converter if it were that it would be slipping all of the time. Could the wiring where the shift leaver be going bad?

Most definately. If it has never been changed, the original mpls (neutral switch) were bad about getting corroded by trapping moisture. The newer style ones do not have this problem.

What's mpls? And a corroded/older metal safety switch can cause these inconsistent issues?

I'm having similar troubles in the 96 bus

96 E350 Cool Bus 7.3 - party bus, minor mods
92 Mustang LX 5.0 - minor mods 13.9@99.5
87 Astro 4.3 - the workhorse... lol
97 Escort Wagon - Turboed, project on backburner

Sorry. It's mlps (manual lever position switch). It can definitely give you problems if flaky. These transmissions are electronically shifted so any electrical issues in any involved circuits can give you shifting issues.
