      Did you scan the TCM?

      It sounds like sticking solenoids but you should first scan the TCM to see what you find.

      Search this forum, there are several threads regarding sticking solenoids.

      What does "go in to gear" mean?

      Are you saying it wont move till it warms up? Or are you saying it "wont shift into next gear" as you drive it, till it warms up.

      Or maybe you mean "wont go into reverse" till it warms up. If thats the case I would agree with carfreak that it probably needs solenoids.

      usually with the "wont go into reverse till it warms up" problem it WILL go into forward.
