the trans shifts and pulls fine when cold, but after a mile of driving it has a slow engagment of first and a high rpm upshift to 2nd. i feel that it may be a partially blown out valvebody gasket or valvebody problem. could it be that cold fluid build up enough pressure, but when it warms and thins out it leaks out somewhere easier?:
