Does it slip in all selections or just one? If it is just
4th, it is likely the OD band. If it is in the others, it
is likely the forward clutch. Either case requires a
teardown to fix. It could be the torque converter has
turned loose and not locking. If that is the case, you
should be getting check engine light and have a fault code
set. There are other fault codes that may be of help if it
is setting the light. You can have them read for free at
many parts stores like Autozone. If you get those codes and
post back, someone here may be able to help but, the news is
prpbably not going to be good.

It was 1st going into 2nd or 2nd going into 3rd gear with OD enabled.
It slipped [2] times and no more and I have driven it about 25 miles
since then.

Does that information tell you anything else new?
thanks, appreciated a lot.

but use at your own risk. Like I said, last resort.
