Jeep Cherokee transmission will not go into park when cold

I have a 2000 Jeep Cherokee Sport with automatic transmission. I have about 78,000 miles on it.

When it's cold (maybe 20 degrees or less), the transmission will not go into Park. After I have driven a few miles (I assume the fluid has warmed up), it will go into Park. I don't seem to experience any problems with shifting through the gears.

Initially, I checked the fluid and it was a little low but not below the min line. I topped off the fluid and still had the problem. I changed the filter and the fluid around 70,000 miles hoping that I had a clogged filter. I still have the problem. Does anyone have any idea what to check next?

    How did you change it? Did you just drop the pan or did you do a "flush"? If you just drop the pan you still have a lot of fluid left in the transmission.

    Dropped the pan so that the filter could be changed too.
