No it sounds more like either a leak from the sealing rings or low fluid and then being driven. You might as well rebuild the whole and make sure it is right.

What motor do you have? Are you using the radiator as a cooler or do you have a remote cooler? Does the fluid seem to have a burnt smell. Heat is a tranny's worse enemy.
