th350 transmission hesitates on going into gear when cold

I have an 82K5 350/350 and when i first start the blazer and put it in drive or reverse it hesitates to go into gear. once its warm and been running a while this doesn't happen.
the fluid is full but i have not dropped the pan to check the filter yet. any suggestion or ideas on what it could be or tips on what i could try?

thanks

have you triedrunning some lucas in it. it sounds like the front pump is getting weak. it sounds like it is having to build fluid press. up after its been sitting for a while, thicker fluid may help keep it in the pump better

it could be whats called converter drain back and it could get worse least this is what happened to me. what happens is the fluid drains back out of the converter when it sits and it has to refill it before it will move could be a sign of a weak front pump put a bottle of lucas trany stop slip in it.

also a clogged filter can be a cause of this so be sure and change it out
