Sounds like a weak cooling fan clutch is not allowing the transmission to cool off properly . When you have the a/c on it activates the condensor fan and that added cooling is enough to keep the transmission at the proper temperature. This is what needs to be checked next for this issue. Hoped this helped. Positive feedback and bonuses greatly appreciated.
