Hoave you replace the Transmission Modulator, if not that could be the problem because the part I mentioned controls the shifting in the trans. Here is the link to what I am talking about from AutoZone. AZ Filters/Transmission Modulator - (A/T) (MV303) | 1989 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais 4 Cylinders D 2.3L MFI DOHC Quad 4 | AutoZone.com. I hope this helps.
