Hello and welcome to just answer.

From your description in the fact that you're constantly bring up transmissions I would say that there is definitely an underlying problem.

The most common cause of repeated transmission failure is a transmission cooler days either restricted or plugged completely.
My recommendation is to either replace the radiator which contains the transmission cooler or bypass the radiator altogether and run an aftermarket transmission cooler.

I think you will find by cooling a transmission fluid down your no longer run into problems of burn up transmissions.

Please let me know how everything works out if I can be of any further assistance in this matter.

Thanks, Josh
