Question about Isuzu Cars & Trucks
Did you scan it yet,
neutral does that mean it slips.
slips means, engine RPM rises fast but not car. does it.
do not let it slip or the tranny will burnup.
the transmissions on newer cars are all electronically shifted
by the TCM brain. and it has LIMPHOME , just like engines.
and skips gears , (varies by maker what)
you need to learn or ask someone to drive car and see if problem
is engine power lost or transmission failure it takes just a short drive.
no matter what scan the PCM , see all errors and report them.
or get car serviced,
or just diagnosed (yes, put that on work order and sign it)
there 3 choices......

It sounds like you have a damaged shifter cable.It is an adjustable cable but if it is that far out of adjustment then it is probably damaged. Replace it.

I would not conclude you have a trans problem,as some other issue maybe be confusing the shift stratagy.
The temperature issues and time driven are the key here.
I would check for stored codes first.
Then go over the basics-Spark Plugs,Ignition,Egr Valve,Vacuum Leaks,MAF Sensor and so forth.
Clean up the engine driveablity issues first.
Becareful when considering changing the trans fluid. That will not fix anything and may cause it to slip more,if you get to that point in your testing
The time parked is not a concern ,as I feel these issues where there before.
If the engine is not running correctly ,you will get just what you discribed,with the shifting up and down
