Check transmission fluid level. May want to change transmission fluid and filter.

Could also be the fuel.With the change in seasons the "winter blend" of fuel is out which does not need to be refined as much as others. If your truck has high mileage switching to higher octane fuel or adding octane booster might help.It helped my 97 Dodge ram.
