good morning my name is ***** ***** I will assist

it sounds like the seals in the trans are getting hard from age and when it is cold they are not holding pressure. when it warms up the fluid, the seals will swell and work. you can try some additives that will help the seals stay soft. if they do not then they would either have to be replaced or you will need to warm up your car for about 15 minutes every morning.
