Answer 1
You need to have the PCM(computer) scanned to retrieve trouble codes. Could be a TPS(throttle position sensor) or other things. Won't know where to start without a trouble code. -

Comment 2
The parts house will not be able to retrieve trans codes. You do not necessarily have to take it to the dealer. A qualified independant repair shop can diaginose this problem. I would seek out a trans shop. You must know someone that has a recommendation for a trans shop. -
