Hi Ramie, my name is***** will be glad to help. Check the transmission oil condition for discoloration, burnt smell, metal/debris contamination, etc that would indicate an internal failure occurring. Check and verify the linkage is fully engaging in both directions and repair any loose, worn, damaged linkage. Let me know the results. The next step you may have to have the transmission pressures tested if all else checks ok to help isolate the problem further.
