Transmission Problem on 1997 Mercury Mystique

Haveing trans problems. When I start the engine, I let it warm up for 1 min. Then I put it in drive, will not move forward or backwards.

After a few mins it moves. It only does this when it is cold.

Need Help.

Many possibilities. Has the fluid level been checked? When's the last time it's been changed? Seals (internal) may be brittle and leaking (pressure , internally). Clutches may be worn. Electrical , but that seems unlikely. I had a '94 Dodge Intrepid with those symptoms and I got away with replacing accumulator piston seals and that fixed it for another 60K. BUT I was lucky.......... Best bet is to have a trans shop (get references) look at it and give you an estimate. Good luck.
Thanks for the info.
