Sounds like it is low on transmission fluid.

Did you check it warm, idling?

Listen to those who know. Replace transmission, alternately get a trans shop to go through it and repair what's wrong. Did you tear the whole trans down and clean the valve body etc?
I believe it's been almost a year since you had the initial problem and I advised a used trans. The auto trans is just tricky enough that it's usually not worth dealing with vs sticking a used one in and driving away. Also the failure rate is much lower on the autos than manuals, so odds of getting a bad used one are pretty slim. I know you told me to basically f-off last time, but figured you might understand my initial advise better now. I have been down the repair road before and came up short, so I'm speaking from experience here.

only thing i did too the transmission was change the dif bearings didn't touch any clutchs or valve body or anything after checking the solenoids tho by giving them 12vand hearing them click good its 100% sure its valve body sticky valve or passage in there i'll have to take it out and find out look after then over n see

Bearing material and filings will be throughout the trans. This is why it needs to be completely disassembled and cleaned in order to work reliably again. A manual trans is much more forgiving as far as dealing with a bit of leftover gunk after a bearing failure than an auto trans is due to all the passages and precision valves etc.
