Why would flushing your radiator have any effect on the transmission? You probably have a Taurus LX, not LXI. Just saying...

Check the fluid to see if it is burned-smelling or brown. If so, your tranny is probably toast. Otherwise, get some Lucas Transmission Oil Conditioner to see if you can get whatever is stuck in the valve body out.

if you happened to get water in a connector it could be causing some odd things to happen i would unplug all the ones you can find and let them dry overnight if you think you got water near them
