05 Superduty transmission delay after gear change b

I have an 05 F350 Harley Davidson. The last month or so I have noticed that when I go from park to drive or reverse that the transmission hesitates before it engages. It does the same going from drive to reverse or vide versa. It doesn't seem to matter hod or cold. Is something about to fail that I can prevent. I always wait for it to engage before a I apply the throttle. The truck has 242000kms on it and I have changed the Trans fluid with the proper fluid from Ford. It has been just over a year since I last changed the Trans fluid. Thank you. Dal

Most likely the solenoids are getting old and slow. Or possibly the clutch seals are worn and leaking more than they used to.

New fluid might help with the solenoid issue.
