Arrow Transmission shifting at high RPM

Okay, I know there are a lot of similar problems, but I think mine is a bit unique.

In a nutshell, my 94 Automatic Civic is shifting at higher than usual RPM, especially from 1-2. It also makes the car dig in a bit when it downshifts as I'm braking. After the car warms up it seems to not be as bad, and if I accelerate *very* slowly it shifts when it should even when cold.

I don't think it's slipping as it grabs very firmly when I put it into drive.

The previous owner (bought a week ago) did an awful job keeping up with the ATF, and it was very dirty when I got it. I changed the fluid, and I was told to wait a few weeks and change it again. I think the first change made a small difference, but nothing major.

I am also having a problem with the oil pressure light going off when the engine's cold, not sure if that's connected.

Thanks for any help!
