As twoice said above, check the fluid. What your looking for in the fluid is a clear bright cherry red color with a shellfish smell, NOT A BURNT SMELL. If it smells burnt and/or is dark, that means you have burnt up your drums internals inside the transmission and more then likely also ruined your TC if the TC wasn't the main cause of the gear slippage in the first place.
My first and always first assumption is thinking that you might not service your transmission every 30,000 miles with all new fluid and a new filter. If you do, that's awesome but stuff can still get into your solenoids and bind them up causing loss of a gear. Replace the solenoids related with the gears first before anything and see what it does, rather it be $200 then $2,000.
If you need help getting it built, private message me.
