Mark this is a little confusing. The negine oil does not influence
transmission behaviour as it has its own oil and filter (inside the trans)
and uses ATF (automatic transmission fluid).

If your trans is not shifting correctly and you have not had it serviced
(oil, adjustemet and a filter clean) then it most likely needs it.

Changing your engine oil once a year is a little too long as well. 6 months
with low miles or more frequently with heavier service is indicated. Check
your under-bonnet stickers or efer to a manual/handbook.

When a trans fails to respond to the shifter it can mean: a seal has gone
hard and only seals once it has softened with temp increase or some dirt has
entered the valve body/solenoids (if applicable) and has caused piston
sticking until the internal pump has delivered enough oil pressure to
overcome the problem or perhaps the internal oil pump is worn causing delays
in operation. Adjustments (if any) pertain to band clearance settings and
thus effect shift quality.

Transmission servicing is supposed to be done with utmost attntion to
cleanliness.

If the trans is overfull with oil it may aerate or froth the oil causing
poor hydraulic operation.
Thats about the extent of my knowledge on autos.
