Check your transmission fluid level and electrical connections at the transmission. Is the speedometer working? If not, could be the vehicle speed sensor (VSS). Is the service engine soon light on? If so, get the trouble codes. That'll be a big help. Could be a failed shift solenoid inside the transmission. HTH. -Jim
