SOURCE: trans problem
OK this is a very common problem. there is a 4 pin connector on the trans. (just below the air box area sometimes blue or grey)(in a shape of a box) that is your TCC soleniod switch connector. just dissconnect that and see what happens. if your problem stops then you need a TCC solenoid. what that does is it locks up your converter at 40mph+ or HWY speeds to save on gas. another way to test it is when your slowing down and it feels like your driving a stick shift and it wont get out of gear and stalls. if that is what is happing thats your problem. just dissconnect it if you want but i remomend getting it fixed. DO NOT REBUILD TRANS. many trans shops try and pull a rebuild on this.

There are to many things that can cause this problem, best thing to is go get the ECM scanned for DTC codes at a transmission shop or Auto zone or Parts Source since they scan for free.
The ECM should have DTC code in it's memory on how the transmission is Performing and have the Transmission line tested for Fluid pressure.
Good luck and hope this helps. Oh and also ways check with more then on transmission shop if there tell you that you need a new Transmission,
It could be a simple as the transmission filter falling off causing the lost of transmission fluid pressure. Check the transmission fluid too.

this could be something in the fuel pump. As the cold motor draws more fuel, it may just be just ok for the engine, but after it is warm, it draws less and may "suffocate" it that way. Same goes for air filter, take a peek if it is not ready for replacement. Has this happened suddenly, or has it occurrend during a long perion of time?

SOURCE: ticking when cold
It could also be the infamous "Piston Slap" common in 1999-2002's.
GM "standardized" pistons or something like that and they did not fit the cylinders tight enough. The pistons "slap" the cylinder walls and make a tapping sound for the first few minutes until the pistons expand to fit. GM would not fix it and says it does not hurt the longevity of the motor ( yeah ri--ght! ) Do a google search for piston slap.
Oil level would help if it is a lifter ticking but will do nothing if it is the pistons slapping the walls. My 02 silverado has been doing this since almost new and the above description is straight from GM and a few visits to the dealership while under warranty.
