Need to check the throttle valve transmission cable for proper adjustment. Check where it connects at the transmission as well to make sure it hasn't been bent or broken. If it's just one click off of adjustment at the throttle body, you'll get all sorts of weird shifting.

I think he means the detent line.

I would also get a transmission Flush at a lube shop. Not a fitler change.

How much of the history of this tranny do you know of. It could have a shift kit in it.
