Most likely, low transmission fluid or a bad transmission control solenoid. A long shot, but it could be a faulty speed sensor. Check to see if fluid is full and clean, then go to a car parts store and have codes read whether you have any warning lights on or not; they'll probably do this free. If this doesn't show the problem, have a transmission pro see it.
