Question about 1998 Chevrolet K1500
I would do an oil pressure test. There is a test port plug on the driver's side of the transmission. You'll need a gauge that will read up to 300 psi. Install it and start the truck and see what the pressure is. It should be 55 to 75 psi in neutral. If there is not pressure, you may have damaged the front pump, if the torque converter was not seated completely.

Hi and welcome to FixYa!
Regarding the issue, I do suspect that you have a faulty or loose shift solenoid. As a first course of action I strongly suggest that you check the connections of the transmission solenoid. It may be a little loose or the contacts needs cleaning.
If still doesn't help then the torque converter may need replacement for it surely is worn out.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!
