    The transmissions don't use vacuum for shift control, so no, vacuum leaks won't cause this. If the fluid level is OK, then check the kick down cable, they start sticking and can cause shifting issues. If that is OK then you may have a transmission with internal issues, and it will need to be checked by a good transmission shop.
