It really sounds like a hydraulic pressure problem,sorry,but it does,when the vehicle is cool,the fluid is thicker,and when it starts to warm,well,it thins and looses hydraulics,a rebuild would be needed to solve the problem,but you can try a fluid change,but most likely would not help.

    The transmission can be rebuilt,but still have a hydraulic problem,and you can have a crack in the casing,and not be able to see it,also the servos can be put together perfectly,and still have a leak because of clearance problems in the clutch packs,lots of reasons for no hydraulic pressure,or the loss of.Dead give away,vehicle warming up,then loss of transmission.The fluid thins,like it should,but is loosing hydraulics .Most of the time,valves in the valve body,just will not allow shifting,when they are sticking,but you can try LUBE GUARD from napa auto parts,it is a synthetic,and is a wonderful additive,if it is a valve in the valve body,this will free it up,but then again,I doubt it being in the valve body,unless the gasket on the valve body is not holding the hydraulic pressure.

Fist check the transmission fluid levels. If the fluid levels are good you have a transmission problem. I suggest you take it to a qualified automatic transmission mechanic as the tools to fix it cost more than a rebuilt transmission.
Best of it.

What causes 1996 Dodge Neon SOHC automatic transmission to delay or slip shifts?


that is a hum dinger, largest ever posted, in one shot.
very good.!
one word , the transmission slips. (never drive a slipping tranny)
overheat indicator.! that is key.
many newer cars will change the transmission shifting any time
the engine over heats.
and overheat wins over transmission , every time.
if the engine burns up, what good is any transmission.? nada.

solve overheat first.

slip or flare.
is when the engine RPM rises fast and the car dont go faster.
SLIPS.
and slipping burns up trannyclutchs and increases the damage. inside the transmission, dont do that. dont allow it,
park it and fix it.

on some tranny there is a temperature sensor that the TCM
watches and changes shift patterns based on AFT fluid temps.
and if the ATF fluid gets too hot , it takes actions. to keep the tranny from harm.

why not get a scan too and see what DTC errors there are..
DTC, engine overheate.
DTC< tranny overheat (caused by above)

I was told by a Chrysler tech that it's the shift solenoid located in the trans. pan. There are 4 of them and you have to have it checked to see which one. You don't want to replace all 4. About $80.00 at a dealer! Mine does the same thing. 2004 Concorde lxi.

have a feeling you need a different grade of tranny fluid or in our terms the transmission oil,is the wrong grade for the extreme temperatures you are encountering .Keep vehicle in a heated garage

WHEN YOU PUT THE CAR IN DRIVE IT WILL NOT GO ANYWHERE


Its the electronic shift control located just under the battery ontop the transmission replace or repair will solve the issue

it'll go into drive but once it reaches 1500 rpm it'll drop into neutral as a safety because at this rpm it is being told to shift gear and when it fails to do so it safely goes into neutral

it will go into reverse just fine and park and you can run all the low drive gears until you reach 1500 rpm then it'll cut it off

i pulled mine out re soldered bad components on the board to fix it but im an electronics engineer it may be easier for you to just replace it
