May help it by doing a pan drop and change the filter and fluid.

Or as people say service the tranny.

With a hundred and forty thousand miles and never been serviced b4 don't touch it wrong move fix what needs to be fixed . I did a tranny on a Bonniville with high miles that never was serviced with in a month the tranny blew. Any smart honest mechanic will tell you not to touch it or else your hit believe me or not your choice?????

What is the fix for the tranny shifting hard after 20 to 30 minutes driving after it seems to get hot????
