Before someone tells you the tranny is shot, you can recode the transmission control module for timing shifts. This is a project for a mid level mechanic, if you are not familiar I wouldn't attempt it yourself. Run the car by a reputable shop and ask them to look at the control module. If its functioning properly... unfortunately the tranny is going out. Best of luck!
