Question about 1988 Chevrolet S-10
I have a 97 ram 1500 with the same thing 45-50 OD kicks in and it would start bucking unless you turned off the overdrive and for me the problem was powerloss due to the injecters, i pulled them off and 2 were 100% clogged. if you clean your injecters be sure to sprey from the bottom to blow out the dirt/rust out of the top to be sure you are not just jamming everything further into the injecters, every easy fix took me a lil over a hour 4 bolts hold the injecter rail in and each injecter has a clip that holds them in after you remove the click carefuly turn the injecter side to side while pulling on them to remove from the fuel rail,then use a pick to pull out the large amout of dirt/rust out of the top of the injecters then you will need to use something to get power to the injecter to open it up, i took 2 pieces of wire with flat ends on then pluged the wires into the injecter the hooked the other side of the wire to the battery, if you do not hear a click sound when u hook to the battery then the injecter is bad, after you hear the click use a cleanning spay and spray from the bottom of the injecter so that the spray comes out the top, after all injecters are clean put them back on the motor, just to be sure all the rubber bushing are on the injecters there are 2 on each injecter 1top 1 bottom, i used a light amount of lube on the rubber seals to put them back in.took it for a test drive and had twice the power and the bucking had stopped.
I hope this helps

If not the torque converter may be a universal joint
