I would give ATS a call and talk with one of their techs. Since they built it, they should be able to walk you through what to test.

My trans is doing the same thing. Was told it could be the governor solenoid and pressure switch. I replaced those this week and it's still doing the same thing. Anyone else have any suggestions on the fix.
