Had same truck brand new and it would free wheel going down a hill when you let off the accelerator it would actually pick up speed if you were towing a load I guess it's just the way it was designed and you couldn't get a jake brake in that year I think it was 07 before they was able to put a jake brake on one and we are talking about automatic I assume.

Thanks for the info , but that's not the answer. I have owned this truck for years . It has never done this before. I'll figure it out . Strange though. No weird noises. Every other gear feels normal
