H22 revving before shifting

I have a 5th generation Prelude 1998 Base I bought about a month ago and it had an EGR valve CEL. I took apart the fuel rail and the fuel injectors in order to easily remove the EGR valve plugs and insert new plugs. Everything was good, my CEL disappeared and I was able to smog my car. Although recently about 1 to 2 weeks I have been noticing my car behaving very awkwardly. Whenever I am driving and lets say when it goes into 2nd or 3rd it over revs. For example I'm driving and it's at around 2900rpm(automatic) and it shifts usually around 3000 for 2nd and around 3250 for 3rd. The car will over rev to like 3500 or even 3750 and then shift. Whats even weird is that it feels like it lets go of the previous gear and is on nothing then slams down on the next gear. It is an automatic but has about 200,000 miles. Also the other problem is that 1st gear is really hard when it grabs on. For example when the car is at normal temperature and it's in D and I begin to accelerate it takes about 1 second to attach to first gear and is very jumpy. But back to the other problem does anyone have any idea why this would happen? I am thinking its from me taking apart the fuel rail and maybe disrupting something causing the engine to put more fuel into the cylinders while shifting. But I am getting no CELs. Also what is the EXACT reason that my car slams down hard into 1st gear? Like I know the automatic transmissions on these aren't the best but whats the reason?

This is the factory fitted flare, fitted somewhat thoughtfully by the factory to all automatic transaxles in 5g Preludes.

Start saving mate, your gearbox is slowly dying.
