Question: transmisson? maybe?

so sometimes when im at a light my speedometer will start to flucuate and when this happens i press on the gas to go my car hesitates to go into gear. i heard this could possibly be a switch/sensor on top of my transmission but im not sure. could anyone tell me what this could be? im not willing to replace the whole transmission is why im asking for advice. thank you
