I would begin by replacing the filter if its not new, 2 possibility of issue, faulty shifting module or defective transmission rebuilt. just because it has been rebuilt does not mean the individual work on it did a good job. the less cost effective way is to locate used modulator from ebay or junk yard, if that does not rectified the issue than more likely it will be the tranny. the bad part is that I dont know of a company offer a bench test for the tranny modulator.

Make sure your transmission gear position and throttle cable are adjusted properly. The rev of the engine and changing of gears needs to be coordinated between the two. Especially the throttle cable position. I believe theres a sensor which detects the throttle position which is cooridinated with the transmission shifting.
