Hi my name is***** will be glad to try to help. check the filter and suction screen for fine metal/debris and friction material that would indicate an internal mechanical failure occurring requiring removal and disassembly of the transmission. Also verify the correct oil is in the transmission but even if not, slipping almost always indicates the need for overhaul unfortunately. If the filter and screen are clean, the next step is to check the pressures and verify they are in specs. Let me know
