Thus far it is at 92,743 but I am not sure if it has clocked over once already.

OK there are a lot of miles on the trans wich opens up a whole new can of worms. The valve body and the circuit controll solinoids could be gummed up. there are a lot of things that could be happening wiht the electronic control unity as well. If the vehicle is equipped with an ECT you need to make sure that it is functioning properly. Is the check engine light on? Have you pulled any codes from the ECU?
Go to this page and subscribe. It is affordable and easy to deal with. This will give you home troubleshooting help as far as diagrams and part location.

See if the car is displaying any codes and get back to me.
