sounds like you have bad shift solenoid or 2,, you have a check engine light?? if that's what it is then its not hard to change at all, just have to drop the transmission pan on the underside of the transmission and then pull the solenoid that's bad and then plug the new one in and usually run around 60 - 120 for those
