The function of the vehicle speed sensors on the vehicle are fairly simply and do not always need reprogramming, generally. If the engine has to rev very high before the shift, there many be a fault within the transmission assembly. Check all of the fluid levels and make sure the transmission is full of fluid first. Have an experienced technician drive the vehicle and inspect the drivetrain for problems to further diagnose your shifting issue. Good luck.
