2000 Buick tranny shifting weird?

I drive a 2000 Buick Century, 3.1l engine and it has developed a shift that is somewhat similar to a nasty shift kit. The shifting is accompanied by a whining noise, that builds as the rpm's build, then subside with each gear change. This thing shifts with a solid clunk! I have noticed when the tranny starts acting up, the temp gauge is higher than normal. Took the temperature off the hose at the thermostat and got 210*. This is not critical, but the outside temps are only in the 80's, and I'm afraid it may get worse when the heat builds later this summer.

Just in case you don't look at your original, I'll post a link to this post, which contains a TSB dealing with this problem.

HTH,
