Automatic transmission problem

I have a 1993 ford aerostar. It has 198,00 miles. It runs very good and has been well maintained. It has a 3.o liter engine. The only problem i have is the automatic transmission fluid runs out of the transmission when the outside temperature starts to get hot. (90 degrees ot over). Any other time it does not leak any transmission fluid at all and operates perfectally. I have installed an additional transmission cooler. It still spills fluid when the temperature begins to get hot. Any suggestions. I think it has to be related to the cooling system somehow.

A very good possibility is a clogged tranny cooler (the one in the radiator).
