Default Transmission problems

Started not wanting to shift out of first gear(in D) would get to redline at about 30mph, shifter was real loose.

dropped pan, replaced gov pressure sensor and solenoid(bought a od and lockup solenoid as well but didnt have time and was kind of intimidated to remove the valve body in the dirt, so i didnt replace it.) new fluid and filter.

now the shifter is tight like it used to be,(isnt slipping from d to n or 2) up shifts smoothly, downshifts smoothly.

Now my problem is when im at a complete stop, say going from reverse to drive, it takes a couple seconds to engage in gear, if i get on the gas and its not in gear yet, itll bang in gear and go, but if i wait a couple seconds its smoothe?

also if i let off the gas, use the brake,like slowing down for a right turn, and get back on the gas it seems like disengages the gear as if i was at a stop, and bangs back into gear. if i coast around the corner let off brake, give it a couple seconds and get back on gas, its smooth?

any ideas?
