2-3 Flare on my 04

Hey guys, I'm getting the 2-3 flare on my 04 4.0 4x4 auto. Do you guys know what exactly the cause of this is? I thought I remembered reading something about a TSB on this. I found some info on this problem for the 4R44E and the 5R55E but I believe my 04 would have the 5R55W. I only get the flare when under a heavy load (going up a steep hill) and I get it noticeably everytime I am at WOT. The 1-2, and 3-4 WOT shifts are just fine. I do have a drivetrain warranty I bought for my truck but I thought maybe it would help to get an idea of what my problem is first. Im thinking something must be wrong the valve body. Have you guys had any issues with this? Thank for any help
