Default trans shifting weird

well long story short, i went on a trip and lost overdrive and drove the whole way with out it. brought it back home let it sit for awhile and now it will shift decent when cold but not at all when warm. i took it to a trans shop and they said there was nothing wrong and they did some reset thing which i dont believe but it lasted 4 days after that then back to the normal problems. second will hang for awhile then shift and it dont like going into over drive sometimes and when you come to a stop it wont downshift all the way and sometimes it will take off in second, also when it gets real warm it will just go into a neutral and you cant go anywhere. when its cold though its not to bad. im pretty sure the trans is gone but i wanted to ask you guys and see what you said. could the check ball be a problem causing this?
