97 E4OD acting really weird>> HELP!!!

This past weekend I went to an big 4x4 event down here in Florida and I didnt do anything crazy but mostly idle around with a couple people in the bed and goose it everyonce in a while. I think may have over heated? sometimes it shifts normal on take off and then other times it acts like its in neutral from a stop when its in drive and don't do nothing until about 2k rpm and it feels like the TC locks and like i dumped the clutch, if it had one.... and shifting is sporadic at times. I and another person agreed that the fluid smelt weird but not burt like.

Any input would be greatly appreciated

It almost feels like a trans brake ...... from a dead stop it will rev to about 1800 to 2000 rpm and feels like I dumped the clutch. only after warm up

Low fluid, loose internal filter, failed seal in the forward clutch. It's one of those.
