Auto Transmission Question

We recently had some troubles with our 89 PLymouth voyager minivan. When you are stopped at a light or stop sign and go to take off it acts like it does not want to go.....drop it down to 1st or second gear and it goes right away....Like I said it sometimes happens. Today we did a transmission filter and fluid change and it's still doing it but not as often. It's a 2.5 turbo with just over 190000 miles on it. Could someone please help with pregnant lady with some suggestions Thanks :-)

190k I think it could be getting worn out but I guess it's possible a solenoid is sticking sometimes.I can't think of any trans guy who would touch it without a full overhaul at that mileage.When you shift into 1 or 2 you are using different passages in the valve body and probably applying a manual band over riding a malfunctioning clutch assembly.
