Im not an expert but it could be the vacuum modulator on your trans. I adjusted mine last week and now my shift points are soft but immediate. The modulator can also be checked with a vacuum pump to see if it holds a vacuum or not. do a search on the "vacuum modulator" you will find adjusting info there. However, It could also be that you are due for a trans fluid and filter change.
Good luck!
