To eliminate a few possibilities;
Check the trannsmission fluid level. The dipstick is on the driver side in the engine compartment. Warm the car up and put it into each gear, without moving, and then back into park while still running.
Pull the dipstick, (take note of the color and if the fluid looks dirty or smells burnt), Wipe it off and put it all the way back in. Take it out and check the level. You should see a low/cold level and a high/hot mark. The fluid should be between the 2 lines.
If not, top it off with the manufacturer Mitsubisdhi Giamond Transmission fluid ONLY. Do not over fill it either. If you think the transmission has had any other fluid other than the Mitsubishi Diamond, let me know. The Mitsu tranny is sensitive and will faill if other fluids are used.
Let me know how it goes.
