Check your fluid level. If it is low, fill it up. Fluid is checked while hot, engine running, and trans in neutral. If the fluid is not red, it is likely time for a rebuild. If the fluid is red, I would think that the level is low. If the trans has never been rebuilt, it may be that the seals are hard, and it takes the added fluid pressure to engage the clutches. I doubt that changing the fluid and filter, as suggested, will accomplish anything, unless the problem is from low fluid. Although the fiber filters used in Chrysler trans do breakdown over time, usually problems from them are identifiable by a whining noise.

Changing the fluid and filter, is normaly considered preventative maintenance, not for repair of problems.

Changing tranny fluid although often recommended rarely cures a problem and if it does it will likely only be a very temporary band aid. If seals are hardened and allowing pressure to escape or clutch packs are burn out they need to be replaced changing the fluid is a just a waist of time and money. I agree 100% with adtkart

Well there is some stress here... this is my take if your trying to get as much life from this tranny as possible then an fluid and filter change might be the way to go...First thing as stated earlier is check the fluid level and put the fluid on a white sheet of paper and inspect it and smell it... If the fluid is discolored and smells burnt then more than likely your tranny is not going to last much longer and a rebuild is immenant...but you may get by for a while with some fresh fluid and a filter. JIMO GL!!

I am just hoping this mentality does not apply to engines in your part of the country. And were you only a mechanic, or a transmission specialist like another member in this thread. Definitely not the same.

Myself, I was a mechanic up until 13 years ago when I moved to Pennsylvania where ANY person with a set of tools, a garage, and a sales tax license can be a "mechanic" too.

I do not question another members' abilities until I KNOW better and I do not post in a manner that may anger another member, I take it to a PM.

A filter and fluid change can't hurt, but also will not help when there is more to the problematic transmission than oil starvation caused by a plugged or disintegrated filter element.
