This really sounds like the typical sticking shift solenoids that everyone is having trouble with, a tranny shop can tell you for sure if thats the problem, or if your mechanically inclined and have a clean work place you can replace them yourself. Nothing like the feel of warm transmission fluid running down your arm to the pit or dripping off the valve body onto your face.
