I left the house & in reverse it felt like the engine was skipping.Put in OD & went about 5 miles made a turn went about .5 a mile stopped made another turn everything was fine.Made a right turn & accellerated & sounded & felt like trans was slipping.Pulled in @ burger joint,went in & got a bite,came out & the truck wouldn't move in reverse.Bounced it off the curb to get back far enough to go foward.Went down the road & it didn't want to shift till I got upt about 4000 RPM & let off accelerator.Never did shift to 3rd or OD.But I wasn't running but about 45 or 50.Got home ck.d fluid was a little low added 1qt. no change still no reverse.
