As with any auto tranny, the gears are moved hydrolically, this means that there is a "valve room" thats how I call it :p dont know the techy name for it, that moves the tranny fluid in certain chambers causing pressure in diff spots, this is what ultimately moves the gears, from what you're describing it sounds like 1. The tranny fluid is low or 2. some seals in that "valve" room are gone and wont hold the pressure.

Hope this helps, auto trannies are relatively complicated, at least on the cars I've dealt with, you're better off trying to find a shop that deals with trannys if the fluid level looks ok.

They should be able to diagnose the issue before actually doing work on it, it shouldnt be that expensive. I suggest you try to find a reputable shop to get the diag done on it, then choose wether its worth it or not.

Glad the info helped.
