unfortunately this is not a good sign of the health of the transmission. Try draining the transmission fluid and strain it through a paint strainer as it drains and tell me if there is any debris in the fluid. What we see on these is a clutch in the transmission fails and the debris plugs up the screens in the shift valves and valve body and the transmission will not apply the clutch packs. The reason it moves a short tome after it sits is the debris falls away from the screens and it will have pressure for a short time until the screen plugs again.
