Ok that could be the issue . I would have the transmission serviced and filter changed next . If there still an issue then you will need to have the solenoid pack and harness checked in the transmission . This can be the issue .These would be the next steps. Hoped this helped. Positive feedback and bonuses greatly appreciated.
