Your transmission is on its last legs. Soon it will be shedding its mortal coil. It must be a loyal trooper as it's giving you the last of its lifes breaths to get you home. Alas transmission! I knew you well dear friend. The transmissions dead. Long live the transmission. In other words. It's rebuild or replaced time.

couldn't b the torque converter, or solenoid?
