I am sure your trans level is fine this is very normal problem with 46re transmission cold weather equals thick oil which makes higher pressure, until warmed up then pressure decreases, no noise its a valve body issue there is no real fix and there is no real problem either

A high-pitched whine in a Dodge Dakota only when the weather is cold might be a normal thing. When the weather gets cold, the belts, starter and alternator need time to warm up. Try a little drop of dish soap on the fan belt to see if this helps quiet the whining.

Change your transmission oil it happen to me . And have your mechanic check the transmission you might have metal shavings in the transmission which is really bad.

The fluid is thicker when cold so you get a harsher engagement when you put it in reverse. Also, part of that problem is that the transmission is wearing out but it's highly unlikely that you need a rebuild very soon. Check the transmission mount to make sure it's not broken because if it is, it'll torque upwards and bang when it's put in reverse. You can check that by putting it in reverse with your foot on the brake and tapping the gas pedal.
