My buddy's 99 does that with reverse, kind of slips till it's warmed up. We were thinking the trans pump might be getting weak. Dodges do have a trans hydraulic pump right? (I know GM 's much better then Mopar but have become a convert lol) Also, when was the last time you had the trans fluid/filter changed? (not just a fluid drain, but a full flush of the torque converter) Could just be gummed up and not working proper until it gets warm enough to loosen the gunk up.

ramvan, what is this band adjustment you are talking about? Is this something that needs to be done as part of routine maint? Can the average guy do that with common hand tools or are special tools, gauges or whatever needed?
