5R55E is delayed while shifting into drive. HELP!?

Hey everyone! I have had a couple of rangers over the years, and recently purchased a 2000 ext cab. I love the truck to death, but the transmission has me stumped and I am getting a little frustrated with it. The problem I am having is that it takes about 7 seconds for it to go into drive. It doesn't matter what gear I am going from when I place it into drive, it still takes about 7 seconds and most of the time when it does go into Drive it will kind of "Bang" into gear. I have been reading up on problems like this for the last week, and I am kind of confused as to what I exactly need to do from this point on.

As I started looking into the problem, I realized that the transmission fluid was fairly dirty, and looked to have never been changed. I pulled the pan off, replaced both the valve body gaskets(which were both brittle and blown out in a few places) and the reverse servo gasket. I then proceeded to putting in a new transmission filter, putting the pan back on, and doing a complete transmission flush using the correct fluid. After I was finished it seemed to be about 25% better, but still takes awhile for it to go into drive.

If anyone can please lead me in the right direction as to what I need to do next, I would greatly appreciate it! I have read that it could be the EPC solenoid to?

Again, any help or input would be greatly appreciated!
