E250, problem in Gear shifting

My E250 diesel, Automatic transmission shows some problem in gear shifting. When I start my car after turned off for some time, the gear won't shift to the second, most of the times. Sometimes, it will work properly after running for around 2-3 KMs.

My Launch X431 scanner shows the error codes 147 and 151. I searched internet with the error codes, and couldn't find much on this.

Could somebody please help me on this. Since I am new to such a forem, I don't know what all details I need to provide here. So please let me know if you need any more details...

Thanks in advance,

A DTC (diagnostic trouble code) should be 4 digits preceded by a letter. Do you have P0147 and P0151? P stands for powertrain and there is a list of these at the top of this page in one of the stickys.
