179k mi
5.3

When putting it into R (cold) when I let off the brake it moves but gives a jerking motion, same with decel on fwy especially downhill
Truck has no codes but last yr or two been way down on power, idles smooth as silk (bought it new)

Hoping this is not the torque converter Ive had at least 4-5 trans and 2 controllers in this thing

It does sit a lot, fluid is clean?? doesnt misfire far as I can tell just has no umph at all and doesnt feel right

With that many miles, it is time for a rebuild. Best to to it now before things get worse. The splines in the sun shell may be going away.

When I get the $ Ill pm you. seems to have stopped...know its tired though these trans suck.
I bought it new and have had at least 4 in there suspect the converters going south.

For the last yr the truck has sat a LOT.....good truck worth putting $ into just eludes me right this sec.

You could try replacing all of the old fluid with a quality synthetic fluid and two bottles of Lucas transmission fix (the thick red stuff). That may give you some more time before having to rebuild or replace. That will cost around $150, but many times will help if the transmission does not have any mechanical damage.
