1986 Oldsmobile Delta 88

I have a Olds 88 1986 and I've been having trouble with my gears slipping. At first this
started little by little over a period of about 5 months. I'd be driving and between 30
and 40 every now and then it just wouldn't shift into 3rd (I'm guessing) until I pushed
down hard on the petal revving the engine. Then just within two days time recently it
started doing that even in higher gears so now I have to drive with it in "2" in town and
just watch that I don't go over 40ish. If I try and drive in normal "D" every time it gets
to the higher gears it will slip down to a lower gear if I dont have my foot flooring the
gas petal and revving the engine. I dont really have the money to even get it looked at at
this point and the people I have asked have been pretty divided. Some say its the tranny,
(which I really hope it isn't being that I for sure cant afford that any time soon) others
have told me it may be the solenoid. One thing that is important to note is that the car
itself only has about 63,000 miles on it. It was a grocery car for an elderly woman before
I bought it so its only had 1 owner and she very rarely used it. Any thought on what you
guys think it may be and also what is the fastest I should be driving in "2"? Thanks.
