It looks like you will need pull the transmission and either rebuild or replace it. from your description and not having vehicle here to test it it sounds like the low one wayclutch has failed which is not unheard of in these vehicle. It is possible there is another internal failure but either way transmission needs pulled
I had a similar problem in my Mazda truck before. There is a pressure switch on the side of my truck's automatic gear box. The switch is connected to the engine vacuum system. When the switch leaks, the vacuum sucked the transmission oil through the vacuum line to the engine over time. Have you checked your transmission oil level? If the oil level is low, that's probably the reason. I was still able to drive back home by adding sufficient amount of transmission oil.
sounds like low transmission fluid, a dirty filter or both, to check the fluid level, open the hood leave the engine running put the transmission in neutral with the parking break on then pull out the dip-stick labled trans, wipe it off with a rag plug it back in then pull it our and look at the level. To see if there is a dirty filter look at the fluid if it is darkbrown or black and it smells burnt then you need to get your transmission flushed and the filter changed.
the auto gearbox is low on transmission fluid is first thought .ot the front clutch but i would suspect low on oil ,start engine put in reverse then check fluid level ,with handbrake on and brick behind drive wheel of course .
Check the transmsion fluid, its low or its slipping, look at the dipstick is the fluid burnt, is it low, vehicle in park engine idling in park pull the dipstick is it at the recommended level, if it not put it at the recommended level. there can be a transmission pump failure, where its not supplying fluid to the torque convertor, the fix is to take transmission out and replace the pump drive
Try putting the transmission in low or 1st gear manually shift it down and try taking off as you accelerate shift it manually to 2 then drive. Did it take off like it should when you put it into low and then shift up or did you feel more power when it was in low if so it sounds like the transmission is not going into low gear but taking off in maybe second gear or even drive. When it takes off in any other gear but low it will start slow and sluggish and as you begain to gain speed it will start feel normal but thats because the speed matches the gear you in at that point.If my assistance was helpful please take the time to rate my assistance thank you.
I would start by checking the fluid level. THis is most likely a 700 r4 Overdrive transmission, The dipstick is located at the back of the engine bay on the passenger side. The vehicle needs to be running in order to check trans fluid. Pull the stick, wipe it and put it back in the tube, then quickly pull it again, if you don't see any fluid on the stick you are at least 2 quarts low. If the transmission fluid id dark black and smells bad, then your clutches inside are probably toast. That's where I'd start.
