Well if you can live with the shift issue, then let it be. If you want it fixed, you can try the cheaper route and have the fluid drained and replace the filter and fluid. No guarantees it will fix the shifting issue. If not ,then your looking at having your local trans shop diagnose the issue and repair.

Lucas transmission fix is worth a try since you are looking at several thousand for a rebuilt transmission.
