Low transmission fluid is one symptom. Check that first. Warm the car up at least 10-15min. Park on a level surface, engine running, in park, open the hood and check to see if it is in the crosshatched areas of the transmission dipstick located along the firewall, Should be a yellow handle.

ok, thanks for the response. Will update
