    how many miles on the truck? Have you ever had a lift pump replaced or retrofitted to the new in tank type? Sounds like the injection pump may be starving for fuel. Any codes? If it is in fact a trans problem, these trucks had an update in the trans module programming to stop torque converter clutch hunting.
