trans question

hey guys, i hate to join a forum and start out with a question, but i'm in need of some kind of answers...

2006 6.0 auto.
ok, so in the mornings when the truck is first cranked and moved it takes forever to go through the shift pattern. the engine will rev almost to or over 3k rpm before it will shift, and it does it going through every gear. after going through all gears one time, it runs smooth as silk and shifts just like i think it should. the truck is bone stock and has 95k miles... any ideas or suggestions will be appreciated.

I don't have the service records and i haven't requested a dealership to look it up for me if it has been serviced at dealerships on a regular basis.

However, i did learn two things through my research this week:

1. FORD'S POWERTRAIN WARRANTY ISN'T WORTH A CRAP! their idea of powertrain stops at the flywheel... i have yet to figure that one out being that it takes a transmission and rear end to get the POWER to the ground.....

2. A dealer friend of mine told me of a trans temp sensor that has a tendency to go bad. and ford knows it but will not acknowledge the problem. And lastly, to fix the problem the transmission has to be taken out and so it's not worth the hassle to me personally...

In my opinion, Ford needs to step up and stand behind their product, or it will continue to go down hill like it has since 2003 on their 3/4 ton and larger pickups. I really do like Ford pickups, but i do not like a company who will not stand behind their product.

Current Trucks:

95 Dodge 2500 RCLB Cummins 4x4 5spd (Stock)
97 Dodge 3500 Ext Cab Cummins 4x4 5spd (Not so stock)
01 Ford F550 4dr 19ft RollBack

Well unless the truck was purchased with an extended warranty, or put into service late in 06 the "power train" warranty was the same as bumper to bumper or 3/36. Some would have had 6/60 power-train ESP with later in service dates.

The 5/100 warranty is on diesel engines only.
