Post 230E Automatic Gearbox - changes only at high rev

I have a W123 230E (1984) with a 4 speed automatic transmission. Since I overhauled the car I find that the change of gears only happens when the rev hits about 4000rpm. Is there an adjustment we can make to the auto gearbox? All filters and oils are new.

Can I swap a transmission from a 1991 190e 2.3 to a 1985 230E? Does anyone know the answer to this? Thanks
