Any clues I should look out for that the 'box may be a duffer?
Check the ATF if possible, make sure it is filled to the correct height and is a clear reddish colour not red / black and burnt smelling, look for leaks around engine / box. Try it in all gears esp. hard accelarating. Let the engine get hot, while stationary, until the fan kicks in then try forward and reverse looking for slippage / slugishness.
