Check your transmission fluid level and comdition. Measure it's normal operating temperature and it's "overheating" temperature. At 214k there is a good chance the friction material is worn resulting in slipping. You might be able to add a secondary transmission cooler to operate at a lower trans temp.
Before doing so, ensure the passenger side front fan is functioning. Test it by turning on the a/c compressor. It ahould turn on almost immediately.
