2001 Mustang GT-transmission issues,please advise

I searched other posts,however,nobody ever post how they correct the isse they are having. My 01 GT automatic transmission is having some difficulties. When I place it in drive,nothing happens for a few seconds and then,sometimes,the trans engages. What could be causing this? I hope I do not need a rebuild and hoping someone has had the issue before me so I know the repair shop is not trying to rip me a new one. Thanks in advance.

P.S. I checked fluid level and it is good,smell is normal as well. Serviced about 10,000 miles ago with new filter and fluid including converter fluid.

License and registration please.

Current rides:
2001 Mustang Gt- Performance Red
2004 Explorer Limited - Black
1999 Grand Am -Green

With a slow reaction like that, it acts like a dirty trans filter.
Are you 100% sure they replaced the filter??

Did you ask for your old parts?

I ask because in most states if you ask for the parts that were removed, by law, they have to return them to you.

Someone with more experience with these auto's will surely chim in.
