weird behavior after transmission filter change

Changed the filter and topped off the fluid (ATF +4) last night in my 00 TJ - now it bogs down after it has been in drive for a few seconds. I haven't tried to drive it yet, just cycled through the gears and noticed it doing that. Tried it twice, left it in a little longer the second time and something (torque converter?) started clicking and I think it would have died had I left it in a second longer.

The only thing that was suspicious - the new filter didn't have metal spacers made in so it squished down when I tightened the bolts down. (whereas on the old one the bolts tightened down on the spacers and didn't squish the filter)
