Super hard shift problems-94 F150-please help!

Hi all...newbie here...I have a 94 F150, 5.0L with the big tranz. I don't know the actual #, but I do know it the one that uses lots (14?) pints of fluid. Anyway. when it shifts from 1 st to 2nd to 3rd, it shifts really hard. The tranz has been rebuilt before because of this, but that didn't fix it. It seems that very hot weather makes it worse and it will do this for a day or 2 and then stop for a day or 2...in other words...intermittent. I had a throttle positioning sensor put in, but this didn't fix it. I desparately need help with this. Any suggestions?

...also, while cruising, sometimes it just slips and won't pull. I rev the engine and it jerks back into gear!

Thank you for the reply
Yes...the torque converter has been replaced when the tranmission was completely rebuilt and updates installed. It is definitely a warm/hot weather problem...it has behaved this winter, although driving in the rain sometimes cause the problems to start. I am beginning to think it's sensor related. No codes ever show on the scanner. Whenever I get the recall work done for the master cylinder, I'll get them to replace the external sensors (manual lever position, throttle position, vehicle speed) and let's see. Anybody have any additional input?
