I drained and installed Mobil 1 synthetic tranny fluid this weekend and for some reason, once in a while, I'll feel a slight slip from 1st to 2nd gears after a stop. Is this normal with new fluid? Hope it's temporary until the fluid works itself in?
Tranny was working flawlessly before the change.

Did you check the fluid level on flat ground with the truck running and the trans in neutral? Checking it in park will give a false high reading. A low fluid level can cause all sorts of problems.

Yep.....Should have checked with truck in neutral....dummy me.
Fluid was too low.
Didnt know this tranny took about 5 1/2 qts. I had only 3 1/2qts in.
All is well now. No slippin.
