Check all your sensors. Check for any Engine Lights. Maybe it is a transmission problem. Maybe the Transmission Module is going bad. I would check your fluid levels and see how clean they are. Maybe it isn't enough fuel either so I would look into a fuel filter, but first I would do a Fuel Pressure Test.

Thanks so much! The check engine Light is on also...do you suggest I have a diagnostic test done?

Yes, I would. You can either buy one or some auto parts let you use one for free. If you get the code you can write it down and tell it to me. Then, I can look it up for you and tell you what is wrong. Your Welcome!
