Default transmission slips once warm

My 97 Ranger with the 4 cylinder and automatic trans, once the transmission gets warm will slip if I take it out of gear and then put back in gear to drive. I have to take it and put it into 1st or 2nd gear in order to make it not slip and drive off but then I can put it back in drive and all is fine again, can someone lend some assistance with this issue?

Sounds like typical OD sprag failure.

transman304, please explain more, is it an easy fix or more for a transmission shop? and after reading what I put the first time I think I should be more specific. As long as I am constantly driving the trans will not slip but if I stop somewhere and put the truck into park and or reverse then go back to drive that's when I will start getting the slippage when I take off initially but if I drop trans into second or first gear while still stopped then I can actually feel the trans building pressure against my foot on the brake. then I can either take off or put it bake into drive and have no issues again until I take it out of drive

Unless you're familiar with transmission work, its a job for a transmission shop. Couple hundred dollar fix at the minimum.
