SOURCE: shifting problems
The transmission/computer is designed not to go into overdrive until it reaches a certain temp and I don't remember what the temp is. Mine does same thing and it has 250,000 miles on it. When you start your truck up do you start it and warm up in neutral? The transmission fluid won't flow unless it is. There is know way to force it to shift into overdrive until it warms to the set temp.
Hope this helps

low trans fluid and dirty trans filter could be the problem ,,or the trans fluid pump ( front main pump ) might have to much dirt ,,,,hope this will help ,,,,joe

Testimonial: "never thought of that,i will change filter and fluid.thanks alot!"
CHECK TRANSMISSION FLUID LEVEL.IF ALL IS GOOD.EITHER FILTER STOPPED UP.OR TORQUE CONVERTER NOT LOCKING UP ITS SLIPPING.SCAN IT TO SEE IF TCC SOLENOID AND SHIFT VALVES IS WORKING.

check oil level first, than check the electrical connector on the tranny. This sound like the transmission shifts from overdrive to drive. Check the wiring from the transmission to ECU and other items. If than happen again, check the shift cable, kick down cable. If that doesn't help, let the tranny be checked at a servicestation.
