Rawkon make sure your running atf 4 or synthetic too. lucas makes a good trnas tune also that you just add in with your current fluid.

clogged filters are the number 1 cause of tranny issues.

I had similar problem last year only mine shifted fine cold, and would not shift into drive when warmed up. I changed the trans filter and fluid and included about a pint of Marvel Mystery Oil when refilling trans. After about 10-15 miles it was shifting like new!

AzTJ Cold like not warmed up or cold out side?

Try putting it in neutral and revving it to 1300rpm for about 10 seconds. That should get the fluid going.
