2011 Jeep Patriot looses drive gear when it hits operating temp

I was driving my Jeep home from work and I turned a corner and my rpms reved really high then went back to normal and was fine the next few days. During a drive to staples I stopped at a light and then when it turned green I stepped on the gas pedal and I didn't move, thought I was hitting it wrong and pushed it right to the floor and nothing then it finally kicked in but I had hardly any power so I pulled into a parking lot and parked for a minute and reversed and then shifted back into drive and nothing again. Thankfully I was in a mechanic parking lot and they came out and pushed it into a spot for me since I was pregnant at the time. Had it towed home and if I start it up I can drive it around my drive way until it hits operating temperature again and then my drive is gone again. Anyone have this issue or know what it could possibly be?

Any sign of fluid leaks? I wonder if the tranny fluid could be low?

Ever get this figured out? I understand it was a long time ago but curious to hear what the issue was

If you have a CVT transmission that is a bad sign.
