Hi Will! Well something is obviously going on. You simply need to figure out if you can fix it before things get worse. The first thing to check is fluid level in the transmission. If restoring the proper level fixes these issues, locate the leak and have it dealt with. If the level is ok, or restoring teh proper level doesn't fix these issue s, you probably should seek professional help. Here's a tranny troubleshooting guide to help you narrow the possibilities. Good luck! http://www.procarcare.com/includes/content/resourcecenter/encyclopedia/ch21/21TSautotranny.html
