Possibly a bad control valve in the tranny. Researched some possible solutions. There's some additive called Valve/Guard for transmissions. Try adding that. If that doesn't do the trick, I would say it's off to the transmission shop. Usually the only thing that cures a bad tranny is a rebuild.........
