Transmission fails when engine gets up to temperature

My 2001 Mazda Tribute 4WDV6 starts to slip between gears when shifting as it
gets up to temperature. Once the motor is hot, it stops going into any gear.
The O/D off started to flash and a check engine light came on. The code was
P1744 Torque Converter Clutch Solenoid-Mechanical Fault.

I replaced the valve body and solenoid along with the neutral safety switch
and changed the transmission fluid. After all that I took it for another test
drive and the same issue started to happen with the new parts.

I don't think it's a replace the entire transmission type issue as it will shift and act normal when the engine is cool.

Thanks!
