Check your transmission fluid level. If it is low it can slip. Also check for a brown look (instead of redish) or for a burned smell. If you haven't replaced it in the last year, I would remove the fluid and refill.

Edit: Saw the tube was attached at the lower eye, not the top of the pylon. Nevermind! Welcome to TT!
