Some tran no-slip may help and cannot do any harm - changing the trans oil and filter should also help especially if the old oil is not pink. Code 68 usually comes up due clutches slipping and overheating which burns the oil!!! Shift kit will probably kill box sooner as you tend to drive them a bit harder and unless the whole box is reco..............

are u driving in power all the time
the gearbox should change into 4th sooner than 80 unless power is on the more used i found the hotter ur gearbox gets when stretching out witch causes overheating issues in a box as well might be up for a rebuild but look in to transcooler as well when u do it if u havent got one
