Mystery Down Shifts

I have a 1998 E320 Wagon 4Matic with 106,000 miles. The trans fluid has been change recently. The problem occured before and after the fluid change. At highway speeds the trans will downshift from 5 to 3rd. This happens at steady state cruising. If I shift to N then to D it will again run in 5th. Eventual it will go back to 5th on its own after several minutes. This is intermitant and only seems to happen after 20 minutes of 60-70MPH cruising. There is no Leakage. Any Ideas
