: If it started happening after the service, my first suspicion would also be too low a fluid level.

I replaced my atf with Mobil 1 synthetic ATF and it is very responsive, firm and smoothe. (better check your fluid type though) I also perform atf fluid service at 6,000 mile intervals and full fluid / filter / inspection service at 24,000 mile intervals. Seems excessive but have you priced a rebuild or replacement for these things? It's like putt'n mone in the bank.
