Losing power during gear change

2188 7
I don't know if anyone else is suffering this, but when my auto changes it sometimes has a very long pause before the next gear engages.

It is definitely more noticeable when it is down shifting as I give it a bit of "gusto", but is also there during standard shift driving

There is a pause of around 1 second and then you can definitely feel the bump as it re-engages

I know I am due for a service, but only the general engine oil and filter changes

Is this something that anyone else has encountered?

At times when coasting or at a stop, it will shift to neutral. Sometimes you can surprise it and the re-engage is rather abrupt. (Mine seems to have learned my driving style and seems to run just fine.)

If that's not what you're experiencing, I'd be concerned.

Sorry, I just noticed that this is in the 1.8L section. I have no idea about that engine. I've got the 1.4T.
