Automatic transmission shifts can be related to fluid temperature and some vehicles also have sport style settings that can change shift quality. If the shifting is irregular and causing unusually high engine speeds this could be a symptom of transmission gear slippage. Gear slippage can result in transmission damage, and should be checked as soon as possible. Automatic transmissions are complex systems, and their overhaul/replacement can be very expensive repairs.
