SOURCE: i have a 94' chevy 3500 dually with the 6.5 turbo diesel.

If it was the trani I would be waiting to hear you say something like it slams into gear or the RPM's go up but the speed doesn't follow. you can try to shift it in low and manually shift it up as needed. It could be that your truck is not starting out in first but rather second. Am I on the right track, is this what your trying to describe.
