Hello and thanks for using justanswer.com
First I recommend we have the fluid level double checked to make sure it is full. It could be an internal mechanical failure but it can also be a problem with the TCM. In some cases the TCM adaptation can be cleared and the module reprogrammed which sometimes will correct these issues. We will need to have the vehicle scanned to see what the stored fault codes are especially the codes in the TCM.
