Tranny Question, New Subject, Trans Sticking

I've searched on here for some time now, and can't find anyone talking about this. I have no idea what to make of this, but here goes.

My problem.
Let's say my truck is parked on a slight (very slight) incline. I get in it, start it, let it warm up alittle, and put my foot on the break. With my foot on the break, I drop it into D. I then let my foot off the break, and the truck is stuck there, like its locked..... After like 2 seconds, it releases... It's almost like the caliper is stuck for a second or two. Or the trans is sticking somehow.

I can do it on command. It seems like if its on perfectly flat ground, it won't do it, but any slight incline, does it every time.

Does this make any sense? Anyone ever experience this?

It's normal, called the "hill assist". From the manual:

Hill assist feature
The hill assist feature makes it easier to pull away when the vehicle is on
a slope without the need to use the parking brake. When the hill assist
feature is active, the vehicle will remain stationary on the slope for up to
two seconds after you release the brake pedal. During this time, you
have time to move your foot from the brake to the accelerator pedal and
pull away. The brakes are released automatically once the engine has
developed sufficient drive to prevent the vehicle from rolling down the
slope. This is an advantage when pulling away on a slope; for example
from a car park ramp, traffic lights or when reversing uphill into a
parking space.

WARNING: The hill assist feature does not replace the parking brake. When you leave the vehicle, always apply the parking brake and select first or reverse gear.

Using the hill assist feature
The hill assist feature is activated automatically when the vehicle is
stopped on a slope greater than five degrees. The hill assist feature
operates with the vehicle facing downhill if reverse gear is selected. The
hill assist feature will not operate if the parking brake is activated.

WARNING: You must remain in the vehicle once you have activated the hill assist feature.

Activating the hill assist feature
1. Press the brake pedal to bring the vehicle to a complete standstill.
Keep the brake pedal pressed.

2. If the sensors detect that the vehicle is on a slope, the hill assist
feature will be activated automatically.

3. When you remove your foot from the brake pedal, the vehicle will
remain on the slope without rolling away for approximately up to two
seconds. This hold time will automatically be extended if you are in the
process of driving off.

4. Drive off in the normal manner. The brakes will be released
automatically.

WARNING: If the engine is revved excessively, or if a
malfunction is detected when the hill assist feature is active, the
hill assist feature will be deactivated.

Thanks Matt, as always. Love these Forums. This is what they are good for. That was one thing that certainly had me wondering. Reading through this description, I am 100% confident this is what I am experiencing.

Thanks Again.
