96 autobox cant make up its darn mind !

how you all doin.greeting from a jeep creep in good ol' blighty!
my '96 grand cherry seems to be hunting for gear on aceleration,
its always been a bit jerky when changing up threw the first couple of gears,but when stuck in traffic today i noticed that around 15 mph it started to kinda'kangeroo' as if the power was coming in bursts,then pulling away it seemed to be hunting for a gear and jerking all around the pace until around 20 and then its smooth as a fool.i've also noticed that if i pull away and run up smoothly to 2k revs then it slide through the gears like silk, i really am at a loss. my fluid's in the pink so to speak, albiet slightly over full(not by much though)
now i had this box replaced a couple of years ago, so before i whip it out and bung a replacement in, i wondered if it could be something else? i've heard talk of torque convertor problems and i was going to change the tranny fluid, filter and re torque the bands (once ive hunted down my torque wrench off me mate and beat him til he lets it go!), as i believe this is prolly the best place to start, but any more suggestions would be greatly welcomed.

all the best
