I actually went through this. 1st problem tranny started leaking, crack in the case cause by the snap ring, snap ring failed causing just about failure of the transmission, but right about the same time, ive noticed delays in shift from park to revers or drive, only right after starting the truck warm or cold. Had the issue serviced with the snap ring- new case, shift kit and a clutch kit. Still had the issue with delay in shifting. Didnt have the transmission work done at Ford, this shop doesnt know what is causing the delay, but what you posted right there sounds about right. Although, it hasnt been doing it that often anymore, sometimes even rarely. I dont know if line pressure equaled out because of the shift kit, which that is why it was installed. If its getting worse I would go with the message and replace that solenoid. I might go in the same route too because ive had the same exact symptoms as you. You also may want to check to make sure teh 2 problems Ive had arent linked, that it may cause the reverse snap ring to fail.
