I have an 04 3.0 with 93K miles on it and I started to see something wierd a coupleof months ago. When I first start it after it has been sitting for a while and I back out of a parking space or my driveway then put it in drive it will slip a bit as I start to move forward. If I am gentle with the throttle for about a 2 seconds it seems to slip into place then it doesnt do it again for the rest of the trip or - often - for the rest of the day. It almost acts like fluid draind out of some pump in the transmission while it sat and the fluid needs to circulate a bit to go into drive for the first time.
If anyone has any insights I would be very appreciative.
Thanks as always.
