It's nice that you changed the fluid to see if that was the issue, a cheap fix, but that fact that the trans is skipping a gear usually means something is worn or damaged inside the transmission. Solenoid, or worse. Time to have a reputable transmission shop 'garage to look it over for you.

Okay- I'm just confused today- but don't those old Swedish Meatballs have oil shared between the tranny and the engine? anyway, it was not a good idea and the trannys go bad as a result- I think this is good advice, but these questions today have thrown me into a parallel universe or somethin'

Try Lucas transmission additive. It is cheap and a lot of people swear by it.
