if it has vacuum control on side replace it and check hose for running vacuum ,also kickdown rod must be adjusted if it exists from throttle linkageto trans, all work with control pressure, band apply, downshift,ect.

The bands need to be adjusted every 12,000 miles on these transmissions. Your shop manual will explain how. HTH. -Jim
