Check the fluid level a low fluid level can do this because the fluid in the trans at cold is high and trans will work but once warm level drops and then you lose pressure in the system. but as said your's is new and at correct level. Check for any related transmission malfunction codes ,was the old trans fluid bad that you replaced , if it was sign of a warn out trans that needs replacing or rebuilding .So other possibility's are internal seals ,when trans gets hot pressure is lost ,this means a trans out and O/H ... If you are lucky you may just have a sensor problem speed input output sensor ? but seen this so many times trans needed rebuilding . Still need additional information then please get back to me with the reply button, and not the poor or bad service, this way i can get back to you or suggest another expert if needed.Your deposit does not pay me until the answer is rated in a positive way,A bad rating does not constitute a refund.If you are not happy or you have sorted out your problem before the answer then please let me know with the reply button .Kind regards Greg.
