Regular drain-and-fills of the AT seem to resolve most shifting problems. In recent years, I've been doing it once a year while doing an engine oil change. Every other year I also add a bottle of Trans-X. Seems to help and doesn't cost a lot.

Beginning on the 4th page of the linked document (document page labeled 26), there is a section on adjustment if you'd like to know more.

Hmmm, that brake band adjustment is probably what I was looking at...I will need to locate it and see if I can screw it up.

Thanks for that link!
