Did the change, I also had to change the pan since it was so bent it would have taken me all day to straighten it out, so I got a new one, but I got a nice gift with my new pan, it has a drip nut, SCORE!!!!
Anyway, there were no leaks, but it appears there was only about 5 quarts in there, I believe its supposed to be 6.9, so I changed the filter, gasket and pan, added the fluid, took it for a spin and now its working much smoother than before, I no longer have the Shift to Drive delay (bear in mind, its only be tested once, I will post back later if anything changes).
Also, the gear 1 to 2 was a little rough at times, not anymore.
