Can you post the code we need more information? The symptom you described can be that your just low on transmission fluid.

try changing the fluid. and change the filter of the transmission. then call me in the morning. or just come knock on my door in the room next to yours.

    It has 192,000 Kms. The engine runs good and the body is in good shape. Is $500 a good price for this car? The transmission (automatic) is slipping.
