Hey how are you ,I will Try to Help you with This Issue

shifting late ,is it slipping you mean where engine rpm races faster then transmission speed ?

did it start to it suddenly or gradually ?

what is mileage on it now ? has it ever been serviced,fluid dropped ,checked for small metal shaving in it ?

do you have any kind of obdII dlc connector scanner to scam for faults ?

If you do not mind me asking are you looking for the most possible causes and taking it to a repair shop or you are repairing it yourself and you need step by step instructions
Please Let Me Know
Thank You

thistransmission is fine it shifts fine is just the shifting is a little late
and I know there is a way to adjust that

click on link to view the troubleshoot table matrix

yours fall under shift to low , possible causes 1- Shift select switch circuit or ecm

this a computer controlled transmission there is no manual adjustment if you talking on shift point when driving or taking off

if the shifter/ shifter linkage at shifter or transmission not going in r or d then that is different story
