Are you able to check your transmission fluid level? If fluid has leaked out of a seal in the transmission the level of fluid could be low. Low fluid could cause your transmission to not shift properly. I would ask for help from a certified mechanic to check your transmission for any leaks and inspect the condition of the fluid. The condition of the fluid will tell him if there is a possible internal issue with your transmission that needs to be addressed.
