If you want to remove the valve body.....you could probably do so......there are different length bolts, and for this reason i highly suggest you have some form of manual to know where everything goes. You really probably won't be able to see much just by looking at it.
There is a rebuild kit, they are not for the do-it-yourselfers. Trust me.
I'd suggest dropping the pan, look at the oil, look and see if there's metal chunks around the magnet.
you could try running some sort of flush through there....but that may make it worse.....not sure.

Curious to see what you do to resolve it.

Ther should be a pressure tap somewhere on the tranny for the TCC, and there should be a procedure for checking the pressure of the TCC.. If it is getting pressure, then I would suspect the clutch itself.
Transmission Exchange in Portland (www.txchange.com) could help you with finding a T/C or parts if you need parts. They can also get you a repair manual which would help you in your diagnosis. I would not touch the valve body without a manual, improper torquing of the bolts will result in warping of the valve body, requiring replacement ($$$$$$$$$)
Last valve body I bought was for a AXOD (Taurus time-bomb) and it was almost $400...
