So today I noticed that my wife’s truck will shift through all the gears and move nothing slips the fluid is good red and not burnt but when I start it sometimes it won’t do anything when I shift to drive this has only happened today but it’s done it 5 times does anyone know the problem? If I go back to park then back to drive it’s works fine

I'm not well versed on all the ins and outs of the transmissions..but would guess a shift solenoid is going out. the older 4 speeds are fairly prone to having issues as they get up in mileage. Fortunately, they are also much cheaper than the 6 speeds to repair.
