MY CHEVY REVS UP AND DON'T GO FULLY

2002 Chevrolet Impala • 164,000 miles

My 02 chevy impala will be in drive and sometimes when I stop at a stop sign it will red up and creep slowly. So I have to put it in 1st and manually shit until I get going and then il put it in drive and it'll be fine until I stop again and sometimes itl go and sometimes itl creep slowly and sometime after it sits for awhile it will drive as if nothing ever happened? Help please. It's an automatic so I don't know maybe torque converter or linkage. Help please

Any warning lights on? Get codes read? You could try changing trans position sensor/neutral switch. Maybe stop by trans shop for scope and diagnosis? Could be a solenoid or trans is going out.
