What was the mode of failure with the original trans? Debris involved? Sure, you're almost gauranteed to have a plugged core from the first failure. Your trans shop should have addressed that issue. It'* a major no-brainer. More damage to the new trans may have already occurred at this point.

You need to bypass the core and install a standalone cooler like I did (Matt did too).

Tell them they should have bypassed the core due to the debris involved in the original failure. Have them bypass it and install a seperate cooler, then flush the fluid. You've scorched it.

another fun little discovery today. when i first move the car after it has been sitting for a while, it slips badly. then i come to a stop, put it in first, and all is well.

After reading this thread I agree with Bill...

When you fry a trans / or have an internal failure such as the Diff or clutches you load that tiny little cooler/warmer with crudd.... This blocks off the passage and creates a no cooling condition... This can fry the trans in a hurry... Anything over 220 or so is tranny death in my eyes... I believe 260-266F is limp home mode... This is very bad...

I would do as Bill stated...

Is there any way we can have you get a white rag and get a couple of drops from the dipstick? And then snap a pic for us?

Not just a lack of cooling, but it'* a major restriction to circulation. The pump can't get full circulation through there.
