Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If the problem only happens when taking off from a stop then I would first suspect low fluid level. If the level is low enough then fluid will move away from the sump when coming to a stop and cause a drop in line pressure.

Has the fluid level been checked?

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
Fluid level is fine.
Issue occurs very rarely.
If level was issue, it would do it lots more consistently.
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 12 days ago.

You've physically checked fluid level since the symptoms started?

I wouldn't have a way of knowing what has been done if the information is not posted to the page as I am not there.

Can you describe the symptoms in detail and anything that has been done to try to diagnose the problem?
