Check the fluid. If its good, bring it to a tranny shop. Might be a simple fix, but a sign of bigger things to come if not taken care of.

Start with basic service. Fluid and filter, band adjustment. Go from there.

I currently have a similar issue with my 97. At the 1 same gear it never wants to shift in if im accelerating really slowly unless I either accelerate harder or let off the gas completely.

Would love to know any info that you've found?
