It's a common problem with the 5 speed Aisin Warner transmission.
The valve body solenoids gets sticky and doesn't move quick enough when shifting. As hotter the fluid gets, the more they stick.
New fluid now and then is the cheapest solution and then live with it since it doesn't seem to get much worse over time.
Next is to replace the complete valve body which is about half the cost of a transmission rebuild.
With a high mileage car, it might be a chance taking only doing the valve body since the rest of the transmission might have reach the point needing a rebuild.
