Hello. Welcome to JUst Answer. Please allow me to assist you. This sounds very much like the beginnings of a problem with the transmission output speed sensor. A scan of 'history' codes would reveal this. If the vehicle spped sensor code is displayed, replace the vehicle speed sensor. A scan of the car would be necessary to determine this.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reply.
