Most likely the o-ring seal between the torque converter and the transmission is going bad. Get that transmission rebuilt pronto before serious damage is done! But first, have a mechanic drop the transmission pan and look for signs of a very thin silvery film coating the inside of the pan. If found, then the transmission definitely will have to be rebuilt, and the torque converter will also have to be replaced since embedded metallic particles in the old torque converter will eventually come loose, due to wear of the clutch plates within the torque converter, and eat up the rebuilt transmission. Now, here is the deal once the transmission has been rebuilt:
Change the transmission fluid and filter once a year -- no matter what! If you do this, then you should never have any more problems with the transmission.

Sometimes particular clutch packs can fail and the computer won't set a code. The only time a code can be set is if a sensor actually "sees" a problem. Possibly in this case, the clutch pack can fail but the proper line pressures are still right because the front pump is supplying proper pressure and the servos are applying the clutches. Probably the cheapest way to determine your problem would be to drop the transmission pan and carefully catch the fluid in a container. Then, check the fluid and the inside of the transmission pan for clutch debris. This sounds like an amateur way to do it but if it were in my shop, that would be my first step in diagnosing the problem. Good luck!

The absence of 3rd and 4th is imposed by the transmission computer as a precautionary measure. The system has detected fault and rather than risk doing any greater damage has provided a limp home service. It needs to have a transmission specialist look it over and read the error codes. How do your transmission fluid levels look?
