97 golf ACC engine, probably 01M 4 speed automatic transmission. About 120,000 miles.

Very slow to shift in all gears. High engine revs, then jerks into next gear. Drops into 3rd with the slightest
extra load (such as an uphill grade).

Fluid/filter change, Diagnostic and tweaking at about 80,000 smoothed it out for a few months. The original fluid was reasonably clean at that time. 2 years/20000 miles later, another mechanic, diagnostic/tweaking lasted 3 months. He says nothing more can be done short of a rebuild.

Any thoughts?
