After doing some research, I'm hopeful that I may have a B2 piston problem. Here's why:

1. The failure was catastrophic. It went from never slipping in first gear to always slipping in first gear at a single stoplight. This suggests something broke rather than wore out.

2. The symptoms seem to match pretty well. Slips a lot in first gear, occasionally on shifts to higher gears.

3. There was no other sign of problems with the tranny fluid or in the pan.

This can be fixed on the car, if it is really this. There was a comprehensive FAQ on the subject, but the original link is gone. There is a web archive, however. Check out here:
