Transmission 1994 lincoln towncar- 89000 miles

My 1994 towncar is having transmission problems, when I start driving everything is fine but after 10 or 15 minutes the transmission begin to shift slowly or too quickly, it feels like the car is slowing down and them pickup speed again, it also feel like when a transmission is changing from low gear to a higher one but at the same time comes down to a lower gear again, and if the temperature is high like in the afternoon the problems gets worst. What could be wrong. This car was park in a garage for almost a year, I started driving it about 3 weeks ago. The first two weeks drove perfect, the problem started a week ago. Thanks

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

Have your transmission oil filter changed;
it is located under the transmission pan
The oil is what makes the transmission shift
When you shut off the engine it stops the transmission pump then when you start up again the transmission shifts until the filter clogs again
