Welcome,I have been a professional master mechanic for over 35 years and am happy to help you with this.How many miles on it please?Did you check the fluid level?
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
90,000 miles and fluid has always been full and changed when called for. I have read a lot online with a lot of people having clunky shifting problems.
Expert:  Virtual Wrench replied 6 months ago.
Thanks,If the fluid is in good shape then usually this is caused from low line pressure inside the trans or an internal loss of pressure in the valve body.It would need to have the trans line pressures tested with the pan off. Most of the time its a leaking o-ring or a bad accumulator. Gonna take a trans shop to test it to narrow it down.Let me know if you need anything else/LJ
