My red truck is slow to start, cranks over a while, then fires. Yellow truck takes almost as long to fire up... both get plugged in every chance I get when it's cold.
As to the auto trans, if it's still kinda cold, it will hold drive for longer, my auto truck holds out on the OD shift just like you're discribing. I sugjest letting it warm up longer before you take off... less of an issue when plugged in and already somewhat warmed up.
