This is a very common problem with this transmission.
I am going through the same issue now.
I just finished dissasembly and found on the 1st gear set a bad O ring and the snaap clip that holds the assembly together came out of its slot and broke the sprag. It takes two people about 4 hours to remove transmission, another 2 hours to dissasemble and 4 to reassemble. I will order parts tomorow looks like about 400 dollars in parts. The dealer quoted 6900 dollars for the repair. I am a doit yourselfer not sure what your tool or apptitude is mechanically. The rest of the compnents look fine.
Sorry to give you the bad news but there are reuilds availible for about 3k.
