Name is Greg, My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back.and i'm sorry we could not get to you sooner .

With all transmission problems you should check the fluid level and condition .

First it should be on the right level ,a low level fluid will give you shuch problems like you are having .
Now the fluid condition is very importamnt ,it should be a light transparent red to a light brown witch is acceptable ,but if its a dark brown to black and smells burnt then this is an internal transmission problem ,and will need opening to see what has damaged.

Now if the fluid level and condition is okay have the TPS checked for correct adjstment
and if this is okay you will need to be hooked up to a diagnostic scan tool and test driven in live mode to see when the solenoids are opening and closing or if they are working at all.then a fluid pressure test will have to be done to make sure the fluid has its set pressure.

More time than none is the TPS at fault .
