Just bought a 2000 Ford Ranger 4x4 with 4r44e trans and 170k miles on it. Truck is straight and runs well. The trans slips a bit when taking off from a light, but only right after I start the truck and drive it. Once it warms up, the trans doesn't slip. It does shift a little sluggish but doesn't slip in any other gears.

Google shows this issue could be caused by old fluid and a clogged trans filter. The truck is due for an oil change soon, and I was planning to change the trans filter while I was at it.

Does this sound right? Would old fluid and filter cause this issue?

Edit- I swapped the auto for a manual and life is better now.
