Transmission in drive seems to slip into neutral, then back into gear.
When I am driving it and let off the gas, turn a corner or just taking off again. Its like it is in neutral, it revs up then it finalily engages. The fluid looks to be full when hot. is there some kind of sensor going bad or is it the transmission going bad?

Re: Transmission in drive seems to slip into neutral,...
Does the fluid look brown and smells burnt or bright clear red.Sounds like the trans is on its way out.Once they start to burn and slip it coats the bands with contaminants that resist holding to the drums when engaging added to that the fact that they are worn a bit after 8 years of driving.If the fluid is not clear red try a service (filter,gasket and fluid )only you can tell wether to do that first or replace outright

Your tyranny is either low on fluid or getting ready to kick the bucket... one of the signs you watch for is the car Jerks hard when changing gears while cold but seems to be OK when warmed up... this can go on for months... one thing to try asap.. get the transmission flushed... and don't be a lead foot... if she is slipping it's not going to help if you give it more gas... but a lot of the time a good flush will help ( filter gets plugged and the transmission fluid isn't doing its job
The item that is electrically controlled and it turn controls the gear shifts is the TCM. transmission control module. They are prone to playing up and one of the reasons for that is moisture in the cable connections near the box. Have some one pull all the harness connections concerning the box apart and blowing them clean with air and ensure that they are dry and clean
