HI,

I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question.

This is caused by an issue with fluid flow. This may be something as simple as the filter being restricted/plugged, or more serious issue of faulty pump, torque converter, valve body, or severe wear of the bands and clutches that the material from them is restricting the flow

The first step is a transmission fluid filter replacement and flush the fluid. If the issue continues, then the transmission would need to come out and inspected and rebuilt as needed.
