If you checked the levels while engine running and they were good.. did you also check the smell? does it smell burnt? because if it does, it might need to have fliud and filter changed, but usually if its burnt it means its because the clutch plates are slipping and you may need an overhaul. Then again it might just be a sticky valve or worn shift solenoid...you will probably have to get a shop to look at it. have you tried to see if it will shift through manually? if it does, then it might just be a shift solenoid that's sticking.

One very likely cause is the transmission fluid is low.Start the car up and let it warm up completely.Change slowly through all the gears and finish in nuetral.Now check the trans fluid.If its low,you add more through the trans dipstick tube.Hope this helps you

It seems as though the Transmission clutches are slipping if it's an automatic or the clutch is worn if it's a standard. If it's an automatic transmission check the Transmission oil it should be clean and no burnt smell. You will easily recognize burnt oil by it's nasty smell.
