something feels wrong with the trans.

ok so i have an automatic trans, and most of the time i'll be backing up and once i put the truck in drive and press the gas, there is this weird pause where it feels like the gears don't catch or the clutch doesn't go in. anyone have any idea of what the hell im talking about?

this is my first truck but i know it never did that in my dads automatic mustang.

Check the tranny fluid. Make sure it's not low or burnt.
