I had the exact same problem. One one of the shift solenoids - valves is failing. If you let it go too long it'll cause the input shaft nut to work loose too and you'll have to go inside the transmission to fix that. Fortunately all of that can be fixed without having to pull the transmission. Look for my series of posts on this subject.

Thx man, I'll head off and get my trans checked out. And hopefully it's just one or two and not the whole thing lol.
