check your automatic transmission fluid for color and smell...it should be cherry red and not smell burnt...the level should be between the hash marks as full while running in Park~ go have some transmission service if the filter and the fluid are old~ AAMCO?

If what The Judge suggested doesn't work then it's time for a new transmission. Most of the time, unless it's something simple, it's cheaper to replace a transmission then it is to repair one. HTH. -Jim
