Most likely the clutch pack in the trans are worn out. If the fluid is burned you could have a qualified technician flush the transmission with new fluid to see if that helps.

Was thinking might be a tran solenoid.

Trans solenoids usually fail at any temp. A good transmission can diagnose it for you at a reasonable cost. But i suspect it will need rebuilding.

How would I diagnose it

It's probably shot, but try Lucas transmission additive, just in case it's sticky valves. I've seen miracles happen.
