if the fluid and clean , and you said you flushed , that leaves 2 options , bad solenoid or internal damage ,from what you derscribing sound like solenoid , but we need to test it

can you have the car scanned and retrieve trans faul codes if any , if there was no fault codes in it , means it is internal damage , can you do that and let me know

now days if you have an advance or auto zone they run scan for free , get those codes and post them back here and i can tell you ?

Please let me know
