Default Transmission Slips When Its Hot Outside Or If I Drive It Hard

guys i had my 05 maxima brand new and rebuilt the trans at 125,000. now its at 145,000 but the problem is that it only starts slipping when it gets hot outside or if i've been driving it hard. i have been using it just in the winter time lately just cause i have other cars. i want to drive it in the summer but everytime i take it out, i cant make it 20 miles cause after that it starts slipping and i feel like if i keep driving it the car will get more damaged as it goes. what do you guys think the problem is? the car drives perfect in the winter weather temps. think i should get a trans cooler?

I rebuilt my vb few months ago but using oem parts & it started doing the same thing couple weeks ago. I installed a trans cooler (b&m 70266). It helps a lil bit. But still slips in 3rd gear after driving for more than 30min tho
I think best bet is level ten vb.

Trans cooler will help. I installed one several summers ago after having similar issues with hard shifting in the summer, especially in stop and go traffic. I rarely get the hard shift anymore.
