go do a diagnostic. if u have either put the car on a jack and spun one wheel, that will happen. car speed sensor says car is stationary and wheel sesnsor says car is moving. u ned to clear fault codes. try disconnectint the battery overnight. if that does not fix it, at least it will clear all fault codes. if symtpms persist, see a doctor (Authorized Garage or at least someone with a diag kit)

Did you try changing the fluid and filter??On high mileage trans I drain the old fluid out then,get cheap trans fluid and refill.Drive it for about 200 miels.Then drain and replace filter and fluid.Make sure you get high quality fluid.Seems to work good.I think trans flushing can damage a high mileage trans.Please correct me if im wrong???

yeah your right with high mileage autos trans. the suddent increase in detergent can cause band slippage with = new/ rebuilt trans needs to be ordered.
