Delayed transmission engagement 5R44E

Hi,
I have a 2007 Ranger with the 3.0 and the 5R44E transmission. The transmission goes into all gears, but lately I've noticed that there's a small delay when I shift from R to D (like after backing out of a parking spot and then moving forward). I also noticed that I don't feel strong engagement into D under those conditions. I checked the fluid and it's full and doesn't smell burnt (only have 27K miles on the truck).
Recently I found a TSB (08-2-5) for 2007 Rangers for delayed automatic transmission engagement. That sounds like the symptoms, but I can't find any more info on the TSB than that. So does anyone have any ideas or advice?

There is a TSB as you stated, there is no fix except to try having the transmission computer reset to relearn your driving style. I did that four months ago, but it still jerks quite hard from D to R. It jerks especially hard when the vehicle is cold.
