Could be the TCM or shift solenoids, when they warm up they go into thermal failure, you could save yourself a headache if you just take it to a good tranny shop so they can run their standalone tests on the tranny and TCM, then they could tell you if it is the solenoids,TCM or an internal pressure problem.


If it's acting like it's in neutral when it should be in 3rd or 4th then you need a rebuild. If it's just hanging in 2nd gear then it's most likely a faulty shift solenoid.
