Best Answer

Check your Transmission Fluid level. Pull into a gas station or someplace very flat and put the car in park, and with the engine running pull the transmission dipstick, wipe it clean, insert it into the tube and pull again. The level should be on the dipstick in the band between L and H. You are probably low on fluid, you fill the transmission through the dipstick tube so make sure you get a funnel that will go into the tube from your parts store and DO NOT OVERFILL THE TRANSMISSION as this will cause seal damage and leakage.
