You can rev as high as you want, the car goes no where (in any gear, drive, reverse, etc). After maybe 5 minutes, everything works fine again. Again it only does it once in a while and there are no Problem lights (flashing arrow) on the dash.
I know there is a history of issues with the PNP switch but I'm not getting the "flashing light" on the dash. And the issue only occurs at startup and then goes away while driving so I'm guessing it may not be related to a PNP switch.
Anyone experience similar symptoms? Suggestions?
P.S. Tranny fluid looks good(red) as it was flushed 10,000km ago, with the proper 3309 fluid.

It could be a sluggish PNP switch but that will usually throw a light (arrow).\
It could be the old fluid or a shift solonoid but the 1st thing you have to do is have it as fresh as possible so change the fluid, reset the tranny adaptives and do the software update
