Have you checked the fluid level? It may need changing along with the filter.

Check the vacuum modulator. Look for fluid when you disconnect the hose. Won't shift right if the modulator is bad.

My opinion is no. The bands don't care if you shift auto or manual. They must hold for the gear to work. Check the easy stuff first. Bands don't get out of adjustment overnight. A vacuum modulator can fail while you are driving.

If the diaphragm breaks trans fluid will be visible. That is the most frequent failure mode. Check to make sure the vacuum hose to it is good. Shouldn't cost much to replace. If it is original it won't hurt to replace anyway.

I've heard your seals blow out quicker if you have too much fluid in there but if you think you do just crack a couple of them panbolts let some out. However too much fluid should not affect your shifting
