Did you already diagnose your vehicle with a scan tool to verify if there is a stored trouble code? You should check the condition of your main control solenoid (it might be stuck), main control separator plate, and the gasket in your main control assembly (might be deteriorating).

If possible also check out the 41 TSB's and 5 Recalls for your vehicle on this link http://www.automd.com/recall-tsb/search/ , 10 of it are for your powertrain. Just click the title of the TSB or Recall to see its summary or content.
