I own a 95 Bonny and had a similar problem. Tranny would shift just fine for the most part and then at times would not shift up when taking off nice and easy. Going into passing gear wouldn't work out either. When going into passing gear it would then kick downa and then back into passing gear right away, yet most of the time the car would shift perfect. This had been going on for quite sometime as I was concentrating on getting the rest of the car in shape. Took it to one garage and they said it seemed electrical. Then I took it to a garage that specializes in electrical and they said it appeared to be mechanical. I could see where this was going so I took it to a Transmission place in my area (AAMCO) and I have to admit - they did the job right. It turned out to be a cracked coil on one of the solenoids. There are two solenoid valves in my tranny. I had them replace both and WOW, solved all my shifting problems. I love driving my Bonnie now. However, to have the work performed cost me about 460.00 Well worth it to me. Glad it wasn't a new tranny. Big Bucks.
