Automatic Transmission Over Heating

Automatic Transmission Over Heating
I have a 2003 F350 6.0 automatic. The temp gauge pags out as hot after driving about 10 miles. The check gauges light comes on. The light for towing start to flash. The unit sometimes has a hard time going into overdrive. Park the truck for a hour,things are fine for 8 to 10 miles.
What is needed to correct the problem?
Thanks All

Not to sound stupid but have you checked your trans fluid level? How long has it been since you serviced your transmission? (fluid change, internal and external filters)

You're going to have to give us some more details, like the mileage, and the stuff Cubalz asked

The transmission was 3 qts low when checked the three qts was added. Still the problem of overheating reading the gauge.
The truck has 106,000 miles on the truck now. I got the truck with 86,000 on it. I have not change any thind in the transmission.
The tranny fluids look good and smell good.
Thanks PKBell
