Transmission issue

2000 Chrysler T&C, 114,000mi, 3.8 liter:

When just started the transmission takes a very long time to engage after it is put into reverse or drive. Transmission also slips during this time also. When warmed up and driven for a while the transmission seems to work just fine.

Sometimes the trany will refuse to shift into higher gear and the rpm's will rev (again only when first driving the vehicle), If I pull over shut the vehicle down and then start it again the tranny seems to start working immediately.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
