Hi my name is***** will be glad to help. Check the oil level and condition for signs of burnt smell or discoloration as well as metal/debris indicating an internal failure occurring. Also if clean have the pressures tested to isolate a potential control valve problem or excessive internal leakage in a clutch pack. Let me know
