I haven't heard of anything in particular that is prone to failure other than what you have mentioned. Except for the D drum, I don't think that any clutch should fail if the pressures sent to it are...

My best guess is the F clutch. The symptoms, from what I understand, don't point towards the TC. A failing TC clutch or other TC components shouldn't send it to limp mode, only failures further...

Dropping the TX and changing the TC is not a big job. TCs can be bought from numerous places, generally as a rebuilt unit.

The problem you have is that small bits of metal will have worn off and...

I guess it's had a good oil flush. Nice. You said earlier that there was already a minor oil leak. You might want to find the source of it when you do the oil fill.

I agree it's most likely something relating to the E clutch. It could be a valve body issue but my best guess is that it isn't seeing as you recently rebuilt it. The E clutch components are on the...

I haven't done the job before, so I can't help you there. I'd probably drop it in so you don't have to remove the steering rack, front suspension, etc. Without the transmission attached I would think...

I think they are 0734 317 205, called a 'piston ring'. They come in the basic rebuild kit.
