Sounds like your brake booster took a dump, leaking too much vacuum, it can cause a transmission up/down shift problem. So check all you vacuum hoses, that you can do yourself, look for any cracks, splits or disconnects, if your don't find anything then seek professional help.

I found two lines that was broken but they are plastic, could that have and affect on it?

Tennishoes?

The small plastic lines usually feed things like the heater controls, emission components, transmission modulator, ect. They can have an effect but are most likely not your real problem.

Is the break booster something hard to get to?

It is the big cylinderical can that is in the rear of the brake master cylinder, the real problem is getting to the four nuts that hold it on up under the dash, but other than that it not too horrible.
