There is a vacuum canister on the front of the transmission about half way down. It should have a vacuum line that runs to the intake manifold. Make sure the hose isn't cracked or broken. If the hose looks good, disconnect it from the intake manifold and use a vacuum pump or just suck on the hose to make sure the diaphragm isn't torn inside the vacuum canister.

You're kidding, right??
Change that first and see what happens. If the converter has a plug in it, drain that too. If the filter is plugged, you will need more pressure from the pump to make it shift, hence the floor it and it shifts.

change it as soon as possible. if the filter is plugged it is running the rest of the trans low on fluid because it cant pump it with enough pressure. This in turn will cause the stacks to slip and you could be stuck tearing it down.

Be careful changing out the fluid on a transmission with too many miles on the oil, could blow up. Seen a lot of Ford Exploders blow out on the lift after changing fluid.

not just by changing fluid does that usually happen, it usually happens on a car that has a trans problem and you flush it and flush all the crap through it then it will shift funny or die afterwards :) i wouldnt worry one bit change that filter and oil
