Hello Rusty

How many km's on the car? Has the auto trans ever been serviced?

I would start with a pan drop and filter change. If that doesn't help, it may be done for.

Don't keep driving it like that. Once a tranny starts slipping, it quickly self-destructs

Welcome to IF!!

As recommended do a fluid and filter change. If that doesn't help the trans needs some work. It sounds like either a pressure solenoid going out or a shift solenoid sticking. Common problem. These transmissions should have their fluid/filter changed every 50k miles or less in order to keep clean components and prevent failure.

FYI: Many people on here will suggest against having the transmission flushed or adding any additives.
