I agree that it won't hurt anything but your wallet to try the fluid and filter change. One other thing you might try is to disconnect the ABS module....a bad module will affect transmission shifting....although you'll end up with a Check Engine light and no speedo, fuel calcs, etc, the trans should shift normally if it is in fact the module....worth a try IMO.
