Default sticking in 3rdgear 1997 lesabre

Hey guys a short while ago i had my tranny rebuilt and the tranny shifts great but it sticks in 3rd gear you have to be doing 80kms for it to shift out of 3rd and it never used to be this way. if you cruise at 70 the rpms are at 3500 and they stay there untill you speed up past 80 and most of the time that is much more than the posted speed limit so i hate haveing to speed when i dont have to just to get my stupid tranny to shift. Is there away to adjust some thing so that it shifts right? BTW i can not take the car back to the shop where it was rebuilt for some reasons.

At 80Kph you should hit OD with light load... Or 4th gear..

It sounds like it taking too long to hit 3rd gear.... I am confused by this.. As you have an electronic trans.. The PCM should be calling on it to shift...

With light load you should be in 3rd gear by 35Kph

well I drove the car today and just counted the number of times the RPM'* droped meaning watching when the car shifts. Iit only does it twice before I hit 80kph so that means I am staying in 2nd untill 80kph?
