hows your kick down. check that
Not sure if you mean kick down cable or what.

The 700 tranny does not have a kick down cable , it is a TV cable.... TV = throttle valve. The TV cable has nothing to do with the reverse engagment.

It sounds more like a pressure loss from a hard seal problem when the temps drop down low enough.

the OD vibration could be the converter clutch chattering.

What year 700 are we talking about? Un hooking electric to a non electronic controlled ( 4L60E) tranny would remove the converter clutch application to see if the vibration goes away.

Like Crossley says it is probably a bad internal seal or seals.
There is no " real " band adjustment possible on this transmission.
The only true adjustment is to your pocket book.
Make sure the fluid level is proper.
If you have the tools and capabilities take a pressure test.
Then remove the pan and have a look around.
Check the filter and filter seal.
The filter seal can be the cause of a low pressure reading.
I have seen filters "implode" which will cause a restriction of fluid intake.

Two questions.
1/ What is a wobblie.
2/ How do you chuck it?
