This is a somewhat common problem. As a transmission gets more miles on it the parts inside wear and during the wear process particles and debris get suspended in the transmission fluid. These particles make the fluid have more friction allowing the tranny to work, despite the increase in tolerances. When you change the tranny fluid the new fluid is more "slippery". Some of the components that relied on friction will no longer work. You can try to run an additive. Lucas makes a good high mileage additive. Just remember to drain some fluid out to make room for the additive.
