And it also happend when i was driving on the highway and it would start to vibrate and i just had to give it more gas to push through it.. SO... i changed the oil and the vibrating a stoped and it started slipping.. And it only happens after it has warmed up..

vibration could have been the converter clutch chatter if it was sliping a bit . Since the vibration stopped after the fluid service , it may have been the converter clutch.

What you now describe with the rest of the information on the problem posted.. it sounds like the fluid thins out and the trans has problems. This trans falling out of gear can be worn out pump , worn sealing rings, hard seals, worn out frictions causing excessive clearance .... something causing a loss of pressure to allow the trans to drop out of gear

It is possible the filter was not properly installed, but usually the pan will not seat back on the trans correctly since it is some what tight clearance from the filter to pan bottom.
Dont worry how old you are... it is the mileage on your body that adds up.
