A live data scan is going to be the only way to find this problem, you will have to be at the altitude where it happens to have it done, I suspect something in the TCM but that will have to be verified. Something you can check is the vent on the top side of the transmission, make sure some mud dauber didn't decide to fill the thing with mud.
