its more than likely a transmission issue. sounds like your torque converter tries to lock up at 10mph and then unlocks. check your transmission fluid.

IT WAS A HALF OF QUART LOW BUT WE ADDED SOME MORE IN THERE AND THEN WE PUT SOME STUFF IN THERE THAT THE AUTO PART STORE RECOMMENDED TO SMOOTH IT OUT BUT IT STILL HAS NOT SMOOTHED OUT YET.
