Could be a failing solenoid or the clutch inside the gearbox.

The transmission is not creating enough oil pressure to make it operate properly. This is an indication of a worn out transmission. Should take it to a transmission shop for proper diagnosis.

Or u have a pin hole it near the air box above ur motor use jb weld will be your cheapest fix
