chevy s10XXXXX My 1997 Chevy s10 v6 vortec transmission

Customer Question
My 1997 Chevy s10 v6...
My 1997 Chevy s10 v6 vortec transmission is starting to slip in all gears. The transmission fluid and filter was receintly changed because i heard some holling at high speeds on the freeway. The holling went away and everything was fine for 500 miles or so. now its slipping. The fluid is up. I didnt smell burnt. 115000 miles on truck. This is its second transmission. The first was replaced by previos owner and when he said it started to slip. He said it was replaced with a better trans to keep this from happening. any ideas. Do they still use vacume demodulators? Help!
