You can pull the transmission dip stick to see if there is enough fluid and the color. Once the vehicle is warm, engine on, parked on a level surface, pull the dipstick, wipe and reinsert, pull out again, it should be in the cross hatched area. If not add small amounts at a time and check level between additions, with a funnel in the dipstick tube.

I had that problem and they found the fluid was burned, so I had the transmission rebuilt. Runs like a top now. Plan on keeping her.
