92 tercel tranny shifting problems

Hey everyone..I have a 92 tercel with a 3 speed auto.When i floor it(merging on highway ..big hill,,,etc) the tranny seems to shift late ...seems the engine is way over its rev limit(no tach) and also shifts rather slow too....what do you think my fluid looks and smells good..Shifts fine when running around town (does engage hard into drive when cold)...I was wondering if there was an adjustment on the tranny for shifting points


Also it has a rough idle when in park and when im stopped at a light in drive....gets worse with air on....runs great at accereration and on the road no misses...I treid cleaning the throttle body but im not sure how to get " all the way in to clean" I just take of the main air hose open up the butterfly and scrub with a toothbrush.

thanks for your help in advance.

Which came first, the shifting problem or the throttle body cleaning?

I noticed the shifting problem way before the tbi cleaning attempt.
