Has the check engine light come on? Is the fluid clean and full? You may have a problem with the torque converter or front pump. I need to know if there are any codes. Otherwise, it becomes a guessing game.

Engine light has been on due to o2 senser I changed filter and 5 quarts today it has never been serviced but fluid was full but dirty I can take and have codes pulled up in the morning I left the truck at work I have to go over a real high brige to get home and I didnt want to make things worse

My concern is if the fluid was really dirty, there could be a problem with a clutch pack. Let me know what codes you pull. Hopefully, one will be a trans code with an easy fix.

I was hoping you were going to say shift silenoid

It could be a solenoid, but that should have set a trouble code.
