Did you check the fluid level recently? The procedure is in your owners manual. level surface, engine hot and on, in the cross hatched area.

The trannys on these cars are notoriously fragile. I would recommend you drop the transmission pan and replace the filter, followed by having the trans flushed, to clean out the torque converter.

I have done this and it still has the same problem. What should it cost to replace the trans?

I paid 2K to have mine rebuilt on my 2001. If you are planning on keeping the car a long time look at Jasper transmissions...they will cost a bit more but are well built from everything I have heard.
