Sticky shift solenoids is my first guess, they are a common failure, see if there are any trans codes in the computer memory. But don't wait too long these trannies won't last long if the shift pressures aren't correct.

Also check the fluid when it is hot. If its low add some lucas trans stop slip ( its almost to 175k which is considered high milage) make sure u check it in neutral with the car hot and put the parking brake on. Have u ever gotten a trans flush? DONT if u have never. It will kill it instantly cause the cars used to that fluid.
