This is somewhat normal. The temp sensor out near the top engine hose inlet mounted on the motor has 2 or 3 sensors. One of the sensors tells the transmission not to shift to high gear until the engine reaches a certin temperature is reached. Your sensor has probably gone out of ranger and is defective not allowing the signal to go to the transmission soon enough.

As you are looking at the front of the motor, the sensor that controls that function is the one on the drivers side of the t-stat housing, the one on the passengers side controls the temperature gauge in the instrument cluster.
