first shift of the day seems hard

Hi,

I'm a couple weeks into ownership of my first PSD. As I'm pulling out of my driveway in the morning I notice that the truck seems to stay in first gear longer than normal (a little over 2200 RPM as I'm trying to creep out of the neighborhood). The shift from first to second seems very hard and agressive. By the time I'm out of my neighborhood (1.2 miles), she shifts just as smooth as ever. Is this just an issue with cold fluid (as cold as it can be on an August morning in FL), or do I have something else going on here? I also notice that the transmission temp starts coming up pretty quickly as I start out (much quicker than the coolant temp). Thoughts? Opinions?

When I first noticed the same thing I thought something was wrong, but after asking around the general 6.0 population runs a litte slugish durning early operation. But if you have concerns with and 05 possibly still under warrenty have a GOOD Ford tech look at it.

I agree mine does the same thing. Just let it warm up a few minutes before taking off and it will shift fine. I had a post about this some said maybe injectors or reflash. I just give it time to warm up. Usually 3 minutes. Take a look maybe it will help you.

Thanks for the responses guys....the issue definitely goes away once it has been warmed up for a few minutes (just the 1.2 mile drive out of the neighborhood seems to fix it). I figured it was normal, but just wanted to check and make sure I didn't need to try and head off a problem that could be developing.

I think they all do that. Mine sometimes seems like it's slipping when it's cold(It's not. It just doesn't want to shift soon enough.), but it's fine after a couple minutes. The 5R110 is just a little temperamental when it's cold
