Slipping problem?

I have a 93 V6 with a AOD in it, 2 days ago I noticed about a 15% powerloss when coming off of a dead stop and when driving around town it feels like something is slipping real fast, almost like it's pulsing wiht about a half second between pulses, it only does this in low speeds around 25- to 40 mph, but the powerloss is still the same, almost like the engine has to do 3 times the work to get the car moving. Last fluid change was a month ago, filter changted as well, fluid appears normal, any ideas?

Thanks

WAS this problem there before the fluid change ?

If YES then have a Transmission shop or your local Ford Dealer
look at it.

If NO then it could be the quality of the New Trans Fluid that was used
I would have it changed again with a high quality Mercon fluid
Valvoline,Castrol ect.

Yes it was there before the fluid change, just didn't happen all the time like it is doing now. I'll change the fluid with some Castrol that i have and see if that helps, but other then that i'm still out of ideas.

Thanks for the reply
