Tranny wont move in drive position, but will when manually shifted

I have a 2001 stroke. The tranny has alto clutches, tugger kit, ATS torque converter and a ATS deep pan. With no sign of a problem since being rebuilt 70k ago I came to a stop sign the other day. When trying to pull away the engine reved but barely moved forward at all. Manually shifted to first the transmission engaged and moved forward. Once rolling shifted to drive and everything operated like normal. Now this happens evertime I stop. Have to manually shift to first, start rolling then shift to drive. Dropped the pan and the fluid looked good and did not smell burnt. Some small metal on the drain plug but looked fairly normal. Pulled the solenoid pack but not sure how to test. Anybody got any idea where to go next?

Recap, only problem is not shifted down to first at a stop. Everything else seems fine. Goes through all gears including overdrive and torque converter locks up like normal.

Sounds like the pump to me. The reason it engages in 1st is because it boosts the pressure when manually put into 1st and reverse. I just had the same problem not too long ago with my tranny. I replaced the solenoid and it helped for about 50 miles, but then came right back. A few company's rebuild these pumps and aren't too expensive. I would definitely start there.

Been gone on vacation. Got back and dropped the pan. Had quite a few plastic pieces in the bottom of the pan. The pieces are 1/4 to 1/2 inch long not sure what from. Pulled the solenoid pack and tested . They tested good from what I can tell. Will start tearing it down tommorow. Spent alot of money to have the tranny built but don't have the money to have it tore apart right now. I'm a mechanic by trade but havent done a automatic before. Don't want to do it myself but I dont have a choice right now. Hope it something simple, like the pump.

No have triple lock TC, shift kit, boost valve, oversized steel plates. Says it should tow my horses, boat, camper and house without any problems. LOL.
