sounds like a shift solenoid is out of it,, I'll look and see how you can pull a code at home,

I tried to find how to pull the code without a scanner but I didn't find anything, looks like you need to get a scanner to get the code,, I have a strong feeling its what I already told you in my last post though and that is that its a shift solenoid or something to do with that.. also check your transmission fluid if its too low it wont let you shift your car correctly
