Best bet is to take it to a tranny specialist or even your local mechanic to get it diagnosed, might need a rebuild with 500k on it it's probably about time

This may be a stupid thing to say but make sure the fluids full. My Ef was doing the same and I thought it was the band and the checked the fluid. It was not low but needed a top up and now she is fine and has been for about 100k's. Mind you mines only got 189 thou on her
