Thermostat has nothing to with the trtransmission. I strongly that you have a pprofessional look at the prproblem.

Well I'm a do it my self so i know how. andim going through the process of elemination so it might be the govenor pressure cylanoid

The tranny will catch every 20. mins. and move a foot and kick back out

I changed the filter and changed the oil and it went through gears but won't sgift to 4th for a long time
