slow shifting into first?

I have a 96 F 250 7.3 started having problem when it sits and idles for a long time or back up a long distance when its hot.I shift into drive and then it seems like it wont go into first. If i get on the gas it starts to move once its in gear its like nothing wrong all other gears shift perfect. Just did a new trany filter and fluid,but still does it only when its hot???? Runs and shifts great when its cold or at normal temp. Anybody ever a problem like this ??? Not sure what to do ??

Sounds like a low reverse clutch failure too me, Is the fluid burnt? If not pull the plug and catch the fluid in a paint filter. I will bet that you will see clutch material in the filter. Long storey short it's time for a rebuild.

Thanks

Thanks Eric B for the info on the slow shift into first. I recently did a filter and fluid change , It helped out alot and yes there was very fine powder like metal on the maginet in the pan. I'm Planning on swaping out to a after market Tranny . ATS / Suncoast has anyone had good luck with any of those? Or do think a tranny from ford would do the trick.I'm planning getting a toy hauler in the future and I want something rock solid and dependable.

Anytime, I hate to tell you who's tranny to use just be sure that you get a multifricton T/C that is the weak part in the E40D 4R100 trannys, If they can't or want install a transgo tugger kit with the on off T/C valve look else where.
