transmission lag

Hi all need some input on my transmission. I just bought a 97 base lude from a guy and got it dirt cheap. His mom was the original owner (old lady) who never raced the car or treated it bad. She put 211k on it and decided to buy something else. Now here is the fun part. She has receipts for everything she ever had done to the car which included a new transmission put in at 176k. (3 yrs ago I think) and this was done at Honda. When I test drove the car...and yes its an automatic so please be gentle I want a manual so I may end up doing a swap so my wife cant drive it Let me get down to the problem now that you have a little back story.
I get in the car and crank it up..all is good
I put in D4 and get my drive on....
1st gear is pretty nice but it just got a little pushy with second gear...(I don't think they like each other)
Lets slow down a little....here comes the problem> I let off the gas and it literally feels like i have been driving a manual and down shifted wrong. This usually happens in 1st and 2nd gears. Now when I punch the gas it has no problems getting up there. Sometime it will shift hard into the next gear as well...
Any thoughts?

Re: transmission lag

Well just consider it an excuse to your wife to go ahead and do that 5spd swap you wanted, but it sounds like your auto is goin out on ya. It doesnt take long for them to do so.
