Have trans scanned for codes.(maybe the reason for the sluggish take-off is that it's starting out in second gear , or the lock-up clutch is engaging incorrectly(early).

Sounds like it is very possible, but if you have any check engine lights on, I would get someone to scan the codes for you and start with those repairs. You might just need a sensor or other part not included in a tune up. You will need to check the condition of the spark plugs, wires, filters etc. to determine the other things needed as well.
