First if you have a Service Engine Soon light on get it scan and find out why you have it.

Could be the temperature sensor in the wiring harness inside the trans, or the thermostat that is located near the radiator and it has failed so the hot fluid from the trans is NOT being circulated and cooled.

Get an infrared thermometer and see what the temp readings are.
