Unhappy 91 ranger auto transmission problem

When you shift from park to either reverse or o/d or drive or 1 or 2 it doesn't engage for at least a minute or soo. Once you get going in drive and come to stop sign and press brake peddle it jumps out of drive into a temporary neutral then after shifting back and forth in the 12Dand o/d it will go until next time you have to brake. I checked tranny fluid and topped it off. Will I be able to fix myself or is it totally gone. I thought I might drop tranny pan and put new filter in and fill it up again. Do you think this will fix or do you think it needs a major overhaul.

I say try a new filter and fluid change before you go through with a rebuild or whatever. If it goes, at least you have a new filter
