Bandit, let me get this right..
1st startup, you have no R or D. But if you put it in 1st, it goes in and you can move forward? Then you can put it in R and you go R correct?
If this is the case, you have the same symptoms I have. I thought it had something to do with the work I did to my tranny this past summer. But since I did a COMPLETE trans and TC flush, I may be experiencing "Morning Sickness" as it was put.
Haven't done anything with it yet, just waiting for it to blow up

have you checked your motor/tranny mounts? I had an issue with mine where I would have to go down to 2 or 1, then a bang as it went into gear, then all gears were back. Turned out to be my front tranny mount I think.
