The fluid is overheating , I'd still have the trans shop look it over for you, a high percentage is it's internal trans issue. Maybe the fluid and filter just needs a change. Sorry I can't help further.

Tom: Can you or anyone elaborate more specific. What happen when I keep not doing anything to it, other than shut engine down and rest it and continue using it until it occurs again? What will this do to the engine ?
