It might have a failing shift solenoid or torque converter clutch solenoid.
Get the trouble codes pulled. Any Auto Zone or Advance Auto will do this for free.

There is one solenoid that I think should be checked as well. The speed sensor solenoid is located on top of the tranny near the shift cable.
You should get the codes pulled before you mess with anything though as the other solenoids are in the transmission and the pan has to be removed meaning you will need a lot of tranny fluid, up to 10+ quarts to refill it.
I don't have access to me service manual right now but I should have it back soon. If not I will find out more info if you need it.
