Shifting problem

So in the mornings the truck doesn't want to seem to shift until its almost at 3000 rpm and I'm barely on the accelerator.... just checked my fluid and its barely registering on the stick. I will be adding some today, but would it cause it to do that? Also checked and its not leaking anywhere, so I'm not sure how it even got low in the first place. Please help. Thanks

Update..... I added 2 quarts of mercon lv and it seems like nothing really changed aside from it having the correct level now. This morning it was still taking too long to shift. I plan on doing the fluid in the pan and filters change next, but I would like to know if that could even be the issue. Or is my trans about to go out?

So now it seems to be doing it even more, but especially if you get on the throttle, and if you get over like 50mph, it doesnt want to shift....... Any and all help is appreciated fellas, I dont know anything about these 5R110s. Could it be just a simple fluid and filter change? Torque Converter?

I too have this issue until the tranny temp gets up to operating temperature, then it shift fine even under WOT. Is this always the case when cold? I'm new to this truck so still getting to know its intricacies. Also, does ECM strategies also apply to TCM as well are they 1:1 or independent of one another? Did previous strategies have been shifting conditions when cold?

Have any of the guys having the shifting problem had the trucks checked for codes? What y'all are experiencing is not normal, unless I'm not understanding what you are saying. I'm reading that your trans is holding low gear too long until it warms up. Yes, no, maybe?

A lot of people will disagree with me, and I don't want to get into a debate about it, but what you just described may be fixed with a transmission flush. Look up BGProducts online and find a shop near you. You are looking for a PF-5 service. This is not a drop the pan/partial fluid exchange but rather a cleaner followed by a 100% fluid exchange. Yes, I've done it on my own SD as well as others.
