If I shift the transmission manually before the engine temp reaches 200 (normal op temp), it shifts fine. So, that's what I've been doing until the temp hits 200. From that point on, I can leave the gear selector on D and the tranny shifts like it's supposed to.
Have you had the front band adjusted recently? If not it's possible it's causing the slipping.
