At work we have two 2007 rams with the 4.7 v8 and 4 speeds. They both do this first thing in the morning. Mechanics say its the fluid draining overnight and takes a second for the pump to get the fluid where it needs to be. Now these are government trucks and get driven by lots of people and have 120k on them and still work fine. A lot of people complain about it but nothing has ever happened to the transmission.

I just talked to the guys at the dealership and they said they have heard of this problem. I am going to drop it off next Wednesday afternoon so they have it to start cold on Thursday morning. I really hope it is nothing.

Mine always takes a second or two to engage in D when it's not warmed up in the morning. Only in D though.

Hey guys.... for slow engagement ("oozing" into gear), only on a cold start, especially in a 2012 truck, I suspect you have a cooler return filter (spin-on filter inside the trans) with a weak anti-drainback diaphragm. I have seen several reports of this on 2012 trucks, so I suspect we got a batch of bad filters from our supplier. Fix is to replace the filter (05179267AC), which should be covered under warranty.

This problem will NOT damage your trans. The trans is not slipping (although it feels like it is); the problem is too little torque from the torque converter (because it is half full of air, because the fluid drained out into the trans sump while the engine was shut off, because the diaphragm in the spin-on filter was too weak). So it's no emergency that you need to fix right away. Get it done when it's convenient for you.

If you do take it in for filter replacement, please PM me BEFORE you take it in, with this info:
VIN (last 8 digits)
Dealer Name
Dealer Location (City and State)
Dealer Phone
Contact in Service Dept (like Service Manager) if you have one
Your name
When you plan to take it in

I will contact them and arrange to get your old filter returned so we can analyze it.

That is awesome information!!!! So if I order the part and replace it myself do you want me to send you the filter?

EDIT: oops, didn't see the INSIDE the trans part. Maybe I won't do it myself.

If the truck is pretty new, low miles, under warranty, etc. I'd take it to the dealer to have them change the filters to try and resolve the issue.

You can do it yourself though, it's pretty easy. I did a write up on the forum a while ago:
