Hi and good morning,
This sound like a typical low transmission fluid level.
Have the fluid level checked first and if good then you need to hook up a diagnostic scan tool and check for transmission malfunction codes.
Could be a valve body problem or solenoid issue .
Suggest you get this on a scan tool soon so no further damage is caused .
Your fluid should be a nice clear light red to clear light brown . If dark brown to black then you have a internal transmission malfunction.
Need further assistance with this issue then please get back to me anytime.
Even after accepting you can get back to me without any extra cost.
