My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
This sounds like a shift solenoid is possibly staying engaged causing this here or an issue with the vehicle speed sensor.You can operate it in manual as this will do more good then harm with this issue but the transmission needs checked/tested further to pinpoint and repair the cause.
Thanks Pete
