Could be the rear band, could be the direct clutch pack, coul be an accumulator seal leaking, could be a combination of the previous.

Couple that with your temp problems I'd hazard a gues you have some internal problems.

If your luck is like mine, it will go BOOM when you least expect it. :(

I vote for the Georend. From what dave said while troubleshooting a trans problem I had, the reverse pressure is like 3-4 times higher than first gear to keep the clutches from slipping with the high gear ratio. when you get a shuddering in reverse it is typically the result of not getting enough pressure to the clutches to keep them engaged (read bad pump or pressure control circuit).

The "losing Prime" thing you refer to is the fluid draining out of the torque converter. there is supposed to be a check valve in the valve body somewhere that allows the fluid to stay in the torque converter so it doesn't run it dry when you fire it over. My gasser did it for a while after a rebuild was installed and it failed in a pretty short time afterward. Thank god for the warranty on that.

This problem is the check valve in the cooler line not holding fluid after it sits for a bit. A simple valve change in the VB will cure it, or, place the transmission in neutral for a minute or so before taking off. If it works fine your problem is not serious.

The problem the original poster is talking about sounds like a more in depth one. He has shuddering also in reverse which is not a good thing, plus temps that are little higher than normal.
