I showed the car to a couple of shops. No error codes came up, even when the green light next to D was blinking on the board. And then it also started slipping when the gas tank was not empty. Some suspected the solenoid but others were sure it is not a solenoid problem. The consensus was at the end that it is just the general wear and tear and eventually the transmission has to be replaced but the new fluid could help to get more mileage out. So I flushed the transmission, new oil and everything, and it was slipping a couple of times after that, and now (two weeks have passed) it has been ok, knock on the wood.
Thank you for your advice, the fluid change seemed to help for now!
