Have Transmission Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Welcome, I'm Chris and independent contractor that helps customers here.
Any warning lights on or flashing?
Any concerns with the trans oil level, color, or odor?
Are you saying while driving it will not up shift or goes to neutral?
When stopped then accelerating, does it feel like it is in the wrong gear?

Thanks, ***** ***** you have not had it scanned to see which codes are stored. The symptoms are pointing to the valve body needing to be removed and overhauled. The fact that it is intermittent and possibly taking off in a higher gear than 1st indicates it is likely sticking valves or damaged springs in the valve bores.
If you choose to swap the transmission without diagnosing and repairing yours, yes the same year model transmission is compatible and can be installed without any programming required.
The valve body is accessed by removing the transmission pan. If you have never done transmission repairs I would not suggest you try this on your car. If you mess up you could ruin the transmission.
Sorry you were not pleased.
