Could be a host of items. before you commit to a new transmission at the shop, check out:
Camshaft position sensor
Clogged or dirty transmission filter
Low level transmission fluid
throttle position sensor
transmission shift module
There are many things that need to be checked out before a shop wants to give you a new tranny for $3600.00
There are many threads in the forum here with exactly the same issue.
