If this is the only issue you ever had with the car, then your are exptremely lucky to this point. But cars parts do fail at some point. It does sound like your going to have to visit a transmission expert in your area or a repuable mechanic to diagnose your issue. Without looking at the car, I would say it is transmission related. Does it mean big $$$, maybe, maybe not. It could be something like a bad solenoid low fluid, or something more serious. Good Luck!

Thks I found out if you take transmission pan off there is a set of metal tubes that carry fluid - one of mine was broke but had to replace whole part. I had transmission man walk me through repair plus delivered part, fresh fluid & filter. I'm on the road again!
