an automobile does not tend to "dive" but my advice to you is to check the automatic transmission fluid, replace the filet and replenish the hydraulic oil, my advice to you is to take your automobile to your local shop and a qualified technician should be able to diagnose the malfunctioning tranny

if the fluid is burnt CHANGE IT AND THE FILTER

Burnt fluid is usually a sign it's too late, it means that the transmission has been slipping due too internal worn components or a low pressure problem, sometimes a service will help if it is a low pressure problem caused by a plugged filter. If you do decide to try the service first I would recommend adding a quart of TransX then top off the fluid and then see if it will drop into drive, if it does then carefully see if it will shift into all forward gears, then return and let it sit overnight, this will allow the TransX to clean out all of the solenoids and small pressure ports, Next day see if it drives as it normally did, if it does you have only dodged the bullet for a short time as it will still need work later on. If it doesn't then the tranny will need overhauled.

Sorry typos but the mechanic said that the fluid was not burnt he said it smells fine

If it's not burnt then take it to a tranny shop, they can plugin and run the series of tests on the tranny and its internal solenoids and pressures, then they can tell you what it will take to fix the problem.
