An issue felt after your transmission’s gear is changed is going to be a problem with the valve body or the valve servos, as it could be binding before gear changed. I recommend having the system scanned and pressure tested by an experienced transmission mechanic.

If you’d like a second opinion on this, consider YourMechanic, as a certified technician can help you diagnose your driving symptoms to confirm my suspicions and suggest an accurate repair. Best of luck.
