RE: Auto tranny theory.

Do you mean when it has to sit for 20 mins that it has to sit for 20 mins 
not running?

If so, one possibility is a bad case.  I have a 82 Jeep Cherokee that has 
these exact symptoms.  Would run fine old, get down the road about 2 miles 
and the tranny started to slip, a mile more mo motion at all.  We 
eventually decided that the case must be heating up and causing a 
marginally leaking part to loose all pressure when hot doue to thermal 
expansion.  The accumulator piston was our prime suspect but I just put in 
a used tranny and it ran fine until it blew a head gasket.  That's my next 
projuet right after I put and engine in the Dodge truck I have.  Oh my I am 
gettin terribly off subject here...
