The problem may have existed before the fluid change and the new fluid exposed it. Mine had similar symptoms before failure. Sticking in 3rd or 5th at a stop sign, lug in that gear for 100ft then bang down a gear, slip banging into gear with a high rpm rev in between, delay in P, R, D then finally tow/haul went off and it wouldnt get passed 3rd gear. These are all symptoms, I wasted my time with solenoids just ended up with a sore neck and spending more on trans fluid. Dont forget a new trans cooler also if it comes to replacing it, I didnt do that and roasted another trans. Now its at brown's so it gets done right. Hope it straightens out for you, good luck.
