Sounds like the bands are burnt/worn. How is the fluid level and color? Changed often? Doesn't sound like it. How many miles? If the fluid is brown or black, never changed and over 100K miles, your looking at a rebuild or replacement if you want to keep the truck.

Color is red fluid is always full has 152000 on odometer shits great when in town only does it when very hot after getting off hwy other wise shifts great could it have some thing to do with trans cooler
