On the throttle, the downshift cable from the tranny attaches at the top via a clip. For a test, remove the clip and detach the line and allow it to fully retract. See if it helps the late upshifts. If so, have it adjusted properly. You can play with its adjustment by the two locknuts near the throttle. Loosen them and give the cable slack to quicken upshifts or tighten it to retard them. On an 88, you may have other problems and they aren't so easily remedied. Average life expectancy on an auto is around 120K. You might want to make sure the fluid level is correct when the car is hot and idling in park. This car takes Type F fluid. Is this what they used?
