Transmission flaring, different


I've got a 1992 300D 2.5 Turbo 166k and my transmission is flaring mainly when warm. Doesn't really do it when cold. My 2-3 shift sometimes revs to 4000 before shifting, but other shifts add maybe 500 rpm when tranny is hot. It's been minimal until recently--getting weird to drive.

Anything to check for flaring when hot only?

I bought the K1 (or K2 whatever it was for the 2-3 shift) spring kit but my indy wouldn't install it. So I'm looking for a more troubleshooting and a more complete solution.

Thanks much for any more advice!
