Transmission help!!

So I decided to change the transmission fluid myself the other day, didn't think anything could go wrong right, to easy of a job? Well I drained the fluid from the pan, took the pan off and changed the filter, put the pan back on an filled the tranny back up with the correct amount of fluid. I did not touch any of the wires, I even redrained and checked everything to be sure, all wires still connected and fine. I used the Castrol that's suppose to be the equivalent to matic J, yes I know nissan calls it matic S now. So the problem is that it seems like it's not hitting the last gear and that it drives at a higher rpm than normally. Used to be able to go 70 to 75 and be at 2k rpm, now it's at almost 3k at that speed. Also got it throwing a code p0740 and p0745 which says, torque converter clutch solenoid circuit and p0745 says pressure control solenoid. So my question is, how the he'll can changing the oil and filter on the tranny without touching anything else cause this? What exactly needs to be fixed and what organ am i gonna need to donate to get this fixed? Oh and she's a 07 4x4 with 120k miles and 6 inch RC lift.

Are you absolutely sure the level is correct? After I changed mine I didn't get enough fluid in. It was quite sensitive to the right level. A quart low was enough to cause problems.
I call BS on the type of fluid. Get that fluid level up to the top of the hatched area and try again. Be sure to run the transmission through all the gears before checking the level while the engine is still running.

I've used AMSOil in the past without any observed differences.
