the uphill rollback suggests the torque converter is starting to go a bit soft. Lots of reasons why this might happen. Any shuddering through the driveline at light throttle, 35-45 mph? The delay in engagement can indicate this. Try this: warm the car up, blip the gas a couple times and shift into drive as the revs come down. Any clunks, clicking or noises? Do a stall speed test. Manually select second and hold the brakes lightly and see how high the revs go when you press the gas fully (Don't do this for more than 5 seconds). If the stall speed is elevated significantly over 2000 rpm, this may indicate a problem.
