It is hard to tell from what you describe. My advice to you would be to try to isolate the noise. If you are sure that it is transmission related, then I would change the fluid and the filter. Bring it to a shop that knows how, because the transmission in your car is "maintenance free" and the procedure to change the fluid is more complicated than a standard automatic transmission. It it not a DIY job, and runs about $250 to $300, as the fluid alone is $130. Good luck.
