Potential easy fix for R to D shift delay? Or just fodder for insults to be thrown

    So, I, like many of you have been experiencing the delay in the transmission when shifting from Reverse to Drive (typically when cold).

    I have been trying something lately and it seems to have disappeared. Maybe its simple enough to be a solution. Most likely it is simple enough to bring the scorn of the internet down on this thread.

    Either way, here we go:

    In the past I would back out, stop, and throw it into drive. Usually this involved a simultaneous(or near enough) release of the brake. That is when the delay would occur.

    Now, when backing out of the drive way, I have been deliberate with my brake and shifting. Enough to make a driving instructor proud. I back out, have the full stop, shift (with the brake still firm), usually wait a half second/1 second pause, then let off and gas it.

    Like I said. Maybe it is too simple to be a solution. Or maybe the system lags like a time warner internet connection and just needs a second to process.

    I haven't had the issue for a solid week and a half now. It is free to try! So why not give it a shot?
