Try replacing the vacuum modulator first. It's cheap. On older transmissions the shift points are determined by a vacuum signal. When you let off the gas intake manifold vacuum increases. If the vacuum modulator is weak it may need the added pull of the increased vacuum to shift the transmission. Also, inspect the vacuum line going from the intake manifold to the vacuum modulator. Be sure it's not kinked, worn, collapsing, or damaged. HTH. -Jim
