Mine did something similar and I believe it was either shift solonoid B or C (not sure, had a shop do it for me)

well, i went to AAMCO and my surprise was that is not the solenoid, nor is the transmission. they told me it could be the bearings in the engine, because i do not have a check engine but the computer says that there is a hidden code detected. i just have to wait until they find out and give a price.. but thanks for your response.
