Check the transmission cooler, if it isn't flowing properly it will overheat the tranny. Overheated trans fluid looses it's quality really fast. What I would suggest is getting an auxiliary trans-cooler and put it on instead of using the one in the radiator, service the transmission and add some Lube Guard for Chrysler transmissions. Hopefully this will clean up the solenoids and keep them cool, otherwise you will have to replace the solenoids cause they have already been damaged.
