*NEVER* SHIFT an Automatic Transmission!

Do NOT drive the truck except to take it straight to a transmission shop!!

1. Truck automatic transmissions need their filter and fluid changed every (Pro 20 thousand, DIY 10 thousand) miles.
Fail to do this and you are asking for trouble.
I would take your truck to a transmission place and have them service it.

2. ALWAYS check automatic transmission fluid CAREFULLY with the truck on LEVEL ground and the transmission lever in NEUTRAL!!!
Be VERY CAREFUL your truck doesn't roll away from you!!!
Failure to check the fluid exactly as described can result in an incorrect level reading.

3. It sounds like it could be shifter bushings or some such thing, again take it to a transmission place and have them take a look at it, chances are fairly decent it is something simple that for a few hundred dollars ...

4. If you don't get it taken care of now in the early stages, you might and likely will be looking at a repair bill in the thousands of dollars.
