Default Transmission slipping when first engaged in drive in mornings

I have a 99 Camry that has 153000 miles and over the past few days when the
car is first started and put in reverse it does fine but when you make the
initial shift to drive and attempt to pull off, it slips for a split second.
After that everything is fine.

Any thoughts??

Have you checked the fluid? Maybe it's low, maybe it's dirty.

Yes, the fluid was at the proper level and it was checked with the engine hot.
It did look a darker color than a bright pink.

It might be worth your while to do a drain and refill 2-3 times.
That'll change most of the liquid and then you can eliminate the fluid
as being the cause of the problem.

With any tranny problem the first thing is to check fluid condition and
level. Consider changing the strainer with a Fram ATF kit with cork
rubber gasket (~$20) and wipe the pan of all the metal shavings.

I wouldn't do an ATF flush at this stage before then. In fact, I would
do an ATF flush persoanlly.
