AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION PROBLEMS

1996 Ford Escort

Transmission problem
1996 Ford Escort 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic

I have a 96 automatic escort, it seems like the automatic transmission is slipping, if it was a manual it would be like the cluch was slipping. Its alrite when you first pull away from cold but really starts slipping after a few miles and wont go anywhere.
im very competant with mechanics but iv never touched an automatic and after looking at the haynes manual iv been put off trying to fix it as it says " take it to a mechanic": never a good sign. Does anyone have any suggestions about what the problem is and is it a good idea trying to fix an automatic myself?

thanx
