190d "85" auto shift issue

Hi to readers. The automatic of the 2-190d's I own (one auto and one manual tran.) has a shifting issue. Fine in the warmer months but now as it is getting cooler it has a harder time to shift and/or no power or speed especially going up hills. Besides that, it seems to be a bit intermittent. normal on some days and worse on others. I have the repair CD from MBUSA (wish I had the book) and can find my way around. I presume this a vacuum problem but just thought to toss this out to see if anyone has an "oh yeah, I had that problem! This is what I did to cure it". (would I be so fortunate!) I will get it, but any ideas pointing the general direction I would appreciate. Thanks in advance for any ideas.
