I would drop the trans pan and change fluid & filter. If you find an extreme amount of debris in pan, filter may have become partially plugged, which can lower internal pressure. Only problem is that if there is enough debris to plug up filter, it indicates wear inside unit, which a fluid change will not correct (no chemical will) But, if problem becomes somewhat better after oil change, an additive such as Lucas conditioner may prolong useful life somewhat.Otherwise, have unit rebuilt.

Does it feel like the shifter cable is actually moving the detent in the transmission? I've seen a broken shifter cable in a cavalier a while back with the same symptoms you described. Check the cable where it connects to the transmission. It's under the hood on the drivers side.
