Re: truck turns off

Sounds like the front pump on the tranny. I seem to remember reading service bulletin about it. You have checked ruled out most the other common causes unless the PCM is throwing codes to show something different. When its the Tq converter IIRC its becasue its trying to lock up and stalling.

low fluid, missing filter or. lose, a worn/weak pump, worn torque converter seals, or last and least likely bad torque converter.

It sounds like you may be having to take it to a shop and have those things checked out. Its not too uncommon of an issue. Basically low pressure or bad converter. You could pick up a pressure gauge and see what you get.

Not sure if these are for E4OD or 4r100 or if they are both the same pressures

Gear Range-------- at Idle Hot-----------at Stall Hot
Park&Neutral--------55-70 PSI--------------N/A-------
Reverse-------------75-130 PSI-----------240-265 PSI
Drive---------------55-70 PSI------------156-174 PSI
2nd-----------------55-70 PSI------------156-174 PSI
1st----------------75-99 PSI------------157-186 PSI
