Q: Help me... Transmission or something problem... on 2000 Ford Taurus

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
When I crank up the first time of the day it idles to about 3000 RPMs and then eventually goes down. Then when I put it in Drive and press the gas to go. It seems to work fine but doesn't want to shift out of 1st gear easily. It shifts after it hits 4000 RPMs... Only does it with the first gear first time cranking up for the day. Changed the Transmission filter and fluid. Fluid and filter was black and has medal shavings. Car is over 230,000 miles. I get great gas mileage. What could this be? I really need to know if I need to replace something. I'm in college and need a dependable car.. Thank you!
