Default trans slipping at take off

Hey guys my 01 SE has about 160k on it. It just recently started slipping a bit. It only happens from a cold start (when its been sitting for a long period of time) like when I drive it for the first time after a few hours. It only happens at take off and after about one minute it stops and does not happen again. any ideas on what could cause this?

ive checked it at idle hot. I wanted to check it cold as well because that is when I seem to have the problem. I take it that is where you'd start?

Well, kinda. But, it seems the fluid completely drains from all the internals and takes awhile to fill em back up.

PM SGP358 with a link to this thread. He should be able to help out.
