Trans hesitation

Hi guys,
I signed up so I could post my question, but have been reading the form for quite sometime and find it insightful. I have a 03 4x4 f250 long wheel base. Automatic trans. 6.0.

My question/problem:
While at a complete stop, upon acceleration there is a slight hesitation and then it seems to catch and goes. If I let off the brake and ease on the gas it doesn't do it. Only under a moderate accelation. While pulling a trailer I haven't noticed it at all. I serviced the trans about 5000 miles ago. The truck has 115000 total miles. I hope I'm being just being parinoid and it is nothing major. If you need more info, or for me to explain it better, just let me know.

After a chance to use a lift today, I think I have it figured out. Rear end. The drive shaft has play in it. I was able to turn it about a quarter turn in either direction. Also there was a clunk noise in the rear in. Going this week to a mechanic buddy who knows a lot more than I do about how these things work. Hopefully he can pin point further and fix it.

Please post what you find. I purchased my F3 in Jan and notice soon after the same hesitation.. Mine has gotten worse. Put a programmer on it and set to extreme.. You can hold WOT and it will sit for a few seconds then all of a sudden it blast off like a rocket burning down all four on the rear end (july-aug). Now there is no hesitation at take off but there is bucking and jerking once your getting up to speed.. thought it was engine till I started watching rpm when it happened.. I think its tranny issues.

Good luck with it!

Sounds like you got some slippage issues..... I have had two mechanics, my brother and friend of mine, tell me its fine. Both said everything felt normal for its age and mileage.
