The only reliable way is to check it with film. The first thing to establish is at what shutter speeds it acts up. Do you know what speeds were used for every shot you've taken so far?

I wish I did. Unless film has some exposure data imprinting that I'm unaware of.

If you are serious about film photography, get yourself a small notebook to carry in your camera bag or pocket and note down the basic details of every shot you take. I always did that when I was using film regularly. It is invaluable when it comes to diagnosing problems. It is also useful to have notes on where and when shots were taken.

Worth pointing out that there’s a lot of good apps available now to record shooting details (assuming you usually carry your phone)

Or take a picture of the camera (with your smartphone) with the settings visible, with the scene you're taking a photo of in the background. Gets you settings, date/time, and location, with one click.
