W116 280 SE Transmission upshift


I have a strange problem with the automatic transmission upshift on my 1975 280 SE.

The transmission upshifts only when the the engine is idle. This means, i have to shift 1-idle-2-idle-3-idle...

The funny thing is that it changes gear very smoothly, also downshifts without any problems in case more gas is applied, also when the car is stopped, the gears change to the "standing" gear without any problems. Where to check please? Anybody encoutered this issue?
