Sounds like the overdrive band or torque convertor is the issue, they get worn and burnt over time. Is the fluid brown and not red? Since the engine light is on, you can scan the car for the codes, my guess is you will get some transmission codes to help you determine the next course of action. Your local auto parts store will scan the truck for free. Post the 4 digit codes back here.
