After starting it wait a few seconds start again it will go into gear sometime it takes several trys but I finally got it into gear once and drove it home the drive was normal no shifting issues so now it's parked waiting on repair. Any ideas what it might be?

Is the tow haul light flashing or are there trouble codes?

When this occurs no gears will move the vehicle?

When this occurs does it grind when going back into park?

Thanks, ***** ***** in your case the converter clutch drain is faulty and the converter is not holding fluid in it and is only half full or the TRP sensor is reading incorrectly.

Prior to starting see if the fluid is way over full, if so then it is the converter drain back valve.

Now that I have posted a partial or complete answer, you will see you can rate me. The deposit you have already paid is not transferred to me until you rate me. I would like to receive nothing less than 5-star excellent ratings. So if we are not there yet, please reply and let me help more. If you're not pleased, let me know because rating bad does not result in a refund, there are better options. Rating now will not close this post nor prevent replying. Thanks Chris
