Hi there. In most cases, when you have this type of shifting problem, it’s due to old transmission fluid inside the hydraulic lines of the transmission. It could also be due to inner transmission seals being damaged or an inner component failure. The best way to know for sure what is causing this problem is to have a professional mechanic complete a car is hard to shift inspection at your location.
