Hi there,

This could be a number of things, low oil level, slipping, problems with internal oil pressure, you should go get a transmission test and report done, this will give you a better idea as to what the actual problem is, if in doubt about any diagnosis, post the report her for further advice.

Thanks mhp I guess I should have said that fluid level is good and does not have a burnt smell. I will check at local shop to see if they can do a tranny test and get back
