On the end of the lever that puts the car in gear is a button. This controls whether the overdrive is on or off. When overdrive is "off" a light comes on with OD showing on the dash. If the light is "off" then you are in overdrive. so when the light comes on push the button in the shifter handle. if you tow something you want the light to come back on "deactivating the overdrive" and you should see the dash light. You may just have a burnt out light bulb in the dash for this.

I ran my truck to almost empty, filled up and when I drove off I thought that my transmisson may have slipped. I drove it home. No problem, and looked for a transmission place that would do an analysis. ...

Your story really doesn't give us any trans history

You provided no vehicle,year,trans,trans fluid changes,
or any slipping issues that lead to where your at now

ANY SLIPPING AT ALL and you drive it a couple of days,
your going for a rebuild as you were told
