Hi, my name is ***** ***** can be caused by a few things, either the pressure pump is weak, or the clutch dics are slipping, have you had the pressure tested on this yet?

no

this would be the next step, any transmission shop can check the line pressure, if it is good, then the transmission will need new clutch discs and an overhaul, if the line pressure is not good, then the pump will need to be replaced, most shops charge about 60 dollars to check the line pressure,Tim
