SOURCE: 95 ford probe se auto.
Automatics on some Ford Probes are prone to failure under certain circumstances. I say this because I own a 1994 Ford Probe GT auto. Have had it since 1996. It is now my winter car only. AWESOME in the snow and ice btw, but only with good tires. Get Yokohama Ice Guards!
I have twice had the transmission fail. It would start out as a slipping between 3rd and 4th/overdrive, and would do this for 3-4 weeks before complete failure would occur, after which I then would be limited to 1st and 2nd gears permanently until repaired. And both times, it was brought on by cold weather. Something about extreme cold seems to cause these auto trannys to stick, or fail.... The first time I had I repaired, the cost was $2500 but I had a 3rd party warranty.
I also know that there have been problems with inefficient transmission oil coolers on these cars, causing premature overheating of the transmission fluid. Some Probe owners installed aftermarket oil coolers as an additional or replacement cooler.
Is your transmission model the 4EAT? If so, it's probably on its way to 3rd & 4th failure.

how do know this isn't normal, u make no mention of the engine load when this happens, very vague question, need all the facts about the problem if it is one.

is it a stick or auto? it may be the tranny all together, or if its a stick, the shift link may be out of link, or broken

it could be the valve body sticking, or worn clutch plates in the 3 & 4th gear planetary drum, or 3rd &4th gear solenoid is bad
