Question transmission or the torque converter??

I know this a new b question but how to you know when the transmission or the torque converter is going out?? Cause at take off right as you let go of the brake and hit the gas my truck does like a bump then go but only at take off when shifting to other gears its nice and smooth and no hesitation so before i got buy anything like this suncoast heavy duty master rebuild kit( )Sun Coast Converters Diesel Transmissions, Fort Walton Beach FL for 500 bucks is going to fix my problem or would a new Torque converter fix it and im doing this because i think my trans need to be freshened up its got 269000 and i dont know how the previous owner treated the trans

Your problem is most likely the slip yoke on the driveshaft. The splines get dry and stick. Ford sells a teflon grease that works great to fix this.

Yes. Take the driveshaft out and grease the slip yoke.

Make sure the parking brake is on AND the wheels are chocked before removing the driveshaft.

There is a thread on another forum where someone removed the driveshaft with his truck on an incline and didn't have the wheels chocked. He broke two bones.
