Change the transmission fluid for now and see if that helps.

I hope it holds up for you. In my case my auto lasted 150k and went. I did a 6 speed swap and I'm loving the car. Not going back to auto for a very very long time.

Yes in the long run plan to swap to a manual trans..probably a 5 speed...I got this car with a trans fault. ..it sat for a few weeks until I got the code reader...so got about 400 miles on it thus far...it made it a 4 day week to and from work with no faults at all... 35 miles each way.....crossing my fingers I can drive it a while...
