Unhappy automatic transmition

1988 Cavilier Beretta. When driving at a constant speed....say 55 mph. The transmittion keeps shifting back and forth between gears. I can tell cause the tack intermittionly increases for a split second when it shifts. It only last like it is a miss or something. when going up a slight incline it will do it when I reach the nole where the speed slows slightly. It only happens when the speed in not in the increase. The warmer the engine the more likely it will happen. When it is very cold outside .. it doesn't do it much. When It is hot outside it does it a lot.

How long since the last time it had a fluid and filter change? That would be a good starting point.

I've yet to see a Cavalier Beretta. They are birds of the same feather, but two distinct models.

What engine? Which transmission? Need detail to be able to help.

Hass been a while. Don't know if it ever has been done. The fluid has a odor unlike normal . will attempt to make the change tomorrow. Thanks. Is there any vacume valves or swithes on the Trans. that might also need attention at this time? Kelly

The tranny fluid should be red, clear and free of a burned odor. If it's burned, the tranny is likely wiped .
