could be lots of things, If it keeps up get it scanned. Also make sure your battery is in good shape and alternator is charging.

only on an incline, yeah Id def be checkin fluid level. U gotta check that level with trans at a certain temp tho.. IIRC like 30-55 degsC
Also it takes the expensive lifetime fluid.

coop12 is on a distinguished road
You can drive the car in trans failsafe mode, be fine and not damage anything. It will be sluggish though, thats just ebcause the transmission is operating as not to damage anything, somelike like acomputer in safe mode,
to reset it either buy a little obd rest computer, take it to autozone who will do it for free or take it to your mechanic who will reset it for ya
