Sounds like either a TCM problem or the solenoids are sticking after they warm up, common problem with the solenoids after they get some age on them. A good scanner can show you the problem using the live data mode and backed up with transmission codes, or a good tranny shop for further diagnostics.

Hey thanx was wondering about tranny cooling radiator maybe plugged?

Usually it takes longer than 15 minutes to overheat a tranny unless your towing. but if your considering adding a tranny cooler bypass the radiator cooler completely.

Thanx much
