Could it be maybe they used the wrong fluid, it seems over filled a little too.
It had a new computer (mounted on d/s wheel replaced back in 09)are they a common problem?
If you had it rebuilt then the shop that did it has some culpability for its bad behavior if the rebuild came with any kind of warranty. I would bet the shop used the wrong transmission fluid - they should have used ATF+4. No matter what they tell you that is the ONLY fluid appropriate for the 42RLE transmission.
