Default Oil pump repaired, now about the transmission...

My automatic transmission will slip only while the engine is warming up and with the gear selector on D. From a dead stop it takes off fine, but it slips out of gear when going into 2nd and it'll finally work its way into gear. I'm pretty sure it does it when going into 3rd too.

If I shift the transmission manually before the engine temp reaches 200 (normal op temp), it shifts fine. So, that's what I've been doing until the temp hits 200. From that point on, I can leave the gear selector on D and the tranny shifts like it's supposed to.
