Okay guys...
My father and myself were under the hood of my car this morning just to check things out...When checking the throttle cable, we noticed the auto transmission shift cable had a LOT of play in it...you could pretty much stretch it about 1-2" from the stopper. My transmission shifts very lightly, could this be the problem? Is it supposed to be that loose? Should I adjust it to get better shifting? Thanks!

Yea. I noticed the same thing the last time i worked on my transmission. i tightened that thing up and now my transmission shifts much much crisper and at a higher rpm when he pedals to the floor.
