Check to make sure that you somehow did not disconnect or move any linkage that goes from the carburetor (or injection air inlet if you have f/i) to the transmission. on many vehicles this linkage controls internal trans pressure and can influence shift points and application harshness. Your post indicates that you were sleeping when you changed the filter...Don't work on cars unless you are awake!!!
PS: If you have f/i, you would have to be underneath the car...did you somehow cut a wire or catch trans linkage when lifting it?
