2001 malibu surges in drive at 2,000-2,150 with no pedal change

Yes it is a 4t40e trans.and it has no leaks and it is topped up. .No engine light comes on, or stored codes. It does feel like the clutch is going in and out of engage.I have had the fluid changed twice at a local shop,but when I changed it myself recently at 127,00 miles,I found that it had the original pan gasket,the fluid was thick,dark and burnt,( No filings )which leads me to believe that they never changed it the times that I took it there. What concerns me is how bad is it and can I repair it without having to pull and rebuild it??
