My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
If this feels like a transmission fault here this may be an issue with the transmission valve body itself.I have seen debris build up in the transmission cause this type of fault here and had to perform a transmission flush to correct this issue.I would start with a flush to free up and remove debris then if that does not correct the fault the transmission valve body will most likely need tested to see if it needs replaced.
Thanks Pete
