Do you have a service light on? How is the Fluid condition? Is it burnt or have any metal filings in it?

I have the same problem with my 99 Silverado 1500 4.3. no light code about the transmission the fluid level is good and not terrible condition. No smells or nothing. I was thinking solenoid or maybe clutch packs. Idk I'm just a home garage mechanic
