are you sure the transmission is to blame? are you getting a check engine light? that 's how you know? Have you checked the level hot between the hash marks running in park?

could be a defective fuel pressure regulator...we don't know.~

fuel pressure regulator?

There is a diaphragm that will open up the flow is vacuum is increased~ failures range from cracked vacuum hose, hose fallen off altogether or the diaphragm itself rotting and getting sucked into the engine through the vacuum supply...these things are important for the vehicle to run correctly and you could test it...then replace it when found defective...these are NON- OBD-II and will NOT issue a check engine light~

if it is a cracked butyl rubber hose recommend replacing all butyl rubber with silicone ones...they are available at most auto parts stores~
