Question losing rpm

Don't know wether this is a engine or thanny problem but when I shift from drive to park I lose about 1 to 200 rpm enough to notice in the sound and see on the tach. Just wonder if it might be the converter or nothing to worry about?

that is normal. your putting a load on the engine with it in drive and the brake on. my truck does it, my other truck (a gasser) does it and my mom's car does it. totally normal.

losing rpm

If I'm putting a load on it shouldn't it be losing rpms going from park to drive? I'm gain rpms when I shift from park to drive ?

losing rps

Thanks for the reply. No mods that I know of, just got this truck 2 wks ago w/155k on it 1 owner that i have talked to and he said he had not done anything to it. It is on its third tranny. and thought it might have something to do w/the converter?
