Re: please help im stumped...

The hydrostatic Transmission needs a constant hydraulic pressure to do the shifting that needs to be done, if the deliverability of engine isn't there, it could make the Transmission look bad.

1) Check your coolant fans.
2) Coolant pressure test.
3) Coolant bleed procedure.
4) Do a back pressure test on both catalytic converters.

I would recommend www.alldata.com , there might be a little screw on your thermostat housing.

Doe's your Heat work on high max?
Is there any shortage of coolant?
Does your coolant fans turn on when your HVAC is on cool max?
Do you have any bugs, or road litter in front of your radiator + air cond condenser?

You might consider a coolant flush + back flush on your heater core, new thermostat, because of age + mileage.
