THE TRANSMISSION DOESN'T WANT TO SHIF

1976 Pontiac Trans Am

Transmission problem
1976 Pontiac Trans Am V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic

My trans am doesn't want to shift into 2nd gear when driving down the road. It wants to go but doesn't go past 35mph or so until I keep my foot down on the accelerator. Then it will finally shift hard. Any thoughts?

Inspect and test all the following listed below: Oxygen sensor.
Catalytic converter.
Fuel injectors dirty/sticking.
Mass airflow sensor/Airflow meter.
Throttle position sensor.
Manifold absolute pressure sensor.
EGR Valve
Fuel pressure regulator leaking, fuel filter or defective fuel pump.
False air leakage.
Fuel contamination.
Foul/defective spark plugs.
Open spark plug wires.
Ignition coil/Coil packs defective.
Incorrect ignition timing.
Cap and rotor.

Note: If it doesn't apply disregard.
