this is caused by a piston in the transmission that has a crack in it once it warms up the crack seals and operates normally.being cold the crack opens up allowing fluid to flow past it. take to trans shop as soon as you can, will be minimum repair if it has not caused further damage in the transmission.

gear selector may need adjusted, or a solenoid in the transmission is malfunctioning.best to take to a trans shop and have a diagnostic ran on it.

you'll need to get it diagn., it can be as simple as a "VSS" sensor, or a transmission, check the fluid and if BURNT, your looking at a trans.....GL....

it could be that the tick over is two slow in brive,,,
set it up to tickover at 850,,950 rpm (in drive)
or it could be a gear box fult like the drive plate has a crack in it,,,letting the torque converter slap about,,,
chech tick over first,,, bont adjust tick over in gear unless the brakes are held hard on,,,

SOURCE: my 1999 ford taurus wagon (automatic) will not go into gear. it comes out of park, but won't go into drive or reverse...you can just slide the shift on the column...it just slips through without stopp
the same thing is wrong with my ford and they told me it was the trans
