I can help you , have you checked to see if the transmission control module has any codes in it ??
Ok these transmissions have a lot of issues with the transmission temperature sensor located inside the strip harness in the transmission more then likely this is the issue you are having , the bad thing is that to replace the strip harness where the sensor is located inn you will need to remove the transmission and split the transmission case which is very labor intensive and costly most of our customers just put a used unit in the car since its older and it cheaper that way . I hope this helps .
