Couldn't be the vac modulator, that only runs the "feel" (engagement speed of the shift, not timing).

Could be a loose or broken bowden cable, or a shorted or stuck kickdown switch (under the accelerator pedal).

However, this particular shifting behavior is often a valve body problem, requires serious work. Check the ease stuff first....
