2001 F 250 4WD automatic tranny problem (overdrive)

I have been having a problem with my tranny. It doesn't happen all the time but recently it will occassionaly not shift into overdrive. It can be operating normally, shifting into overdrive, and I can stop at a store for a few minutes and when I get back on the road it will not shift into overdrive. I cannot get the override switch on the sterring column shift selector to shift into or out of overdrive. My wife talk to a transmission shop and they told her I needed to have the tranny rebuilt.

A couple of years ago I was stopped a store getting fuel and when I got back in the truck it would not go forward, however it would go in reverse. At that time I had the tranny replaced with a new one. The original went out at 105,000 miles.

The current tranny has 115,000 miles and I want to make sure that before I spend a bunch of money that the problem is really as they say it is. Does anyone have any thoughts to help me out? I was wondering if there are shift sensors or something similar in the transmission that could cause this problem. I do not know anyone in the transmission business that I can really trust to shoot straight with me and not just say I need to rebuild the transmission. If I need to rebuild it, that is what I will do. I want to make sure that is the right answer to my problem.
