Post 2.5 Transmission Issues

Hello, I recently purchased a 99 ranger and overall it seems to be in great shape. It does have one major issue though...

When I first start it up, I must manually shift up from 1st to 2nd and then to drive the first time. After i do this the automatic takes over and I have no other issues until the next time I turn it car on

I changed out the speeding sensor but it doesnt seem to have fixed anything, any other suggestions?

Default Re: 2.5 Transmission Issues

When was the fluid and filter last changed? It might be as simple as that to fix the problem.
