1994 SL2
Default SL2 Transmissin jumps in & out of gear

I have a 94 Saturn SL2 with automatic transmission and recently it has been jumping out of gear while driving then clunks back into gear, it happens at all speeds but mainly over 20 mph. then sometimes it stops happening? You feel it jump out, the rpms go way up then it jumps back into gear with a clunk, Does this mean my transmission is shot? or maybe the valve body?
I changed the transmission fluid and filter about 1 1/2 years ago, any help would be appreciated

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

1) check your battery terminals for corrosion
2) check said battery terminals for these voltages:
* ~12.5v with the engine off
* ~14.4v with the engine, heater, and headlights on
3) you may also need to replace the input/output shaft nuts. instructions in the how-to library (HINT: DON'T bend the pipes on the bottom cover of the transaxle, or else you'll lose some gears).
