Weird tranny actions

Hey, my 99 4R100 has been doing some weird stuff. First thing in the AM it won't shift into overdrive until the truck reaches operating temp. Never done this before.

The other day, I had a small gap in traffic, so I gunned it to pull out and it felt like the tranny slipped a bit, I back out and went again and it took off, then through all the gears it seemed like it slipped a bit. It hasn't done it before and hasn't done it since, and that was about 450-500 miles ago.

Any ideas?

Only thing I had a problem with when the truck was cold was taking off the truck had no power at all.

Well start with the easy, when is the last time you did anything to the tranny filter? And what is the mileage on the truck?

I hear the gauges are crap also. I don't know much for trannys, but just curious, on your truck idling will your tranny heat up faster than the motor or heat up faster regardless? mine seems to start reading temp real quick and I find it hard to believe it warms that fast.

It doesn't warm that fast. The dummy gauge is right in the middle on mine at ~75-80*, and doesn't move a bit up to ~170*.

OP, I'd suggest a flush.
