Transmission Dropped into Neutral?

I was driving today and when i pulled into the driveway ( no throttle applied)
my transmission dropped out of gear and wouldnt shift into anything but park. I shifted a bit then i had drive for a few seconds and lost it again. I parked the truck and started it an hr or so later and it worked fine reverse and forward. any ideas??

Hey just an update, now it wont go into gear at all just the rpm change when trying to shift ... sometimes it will go into gear for a few seconds but i will need to push the pedal quite a bit to get it to move and it barely dos then slipps out again

Yes, You definately have a 4R100. But unfortunately I know very little about those transmissions.

Free Bump!

I'm trying to get ahold of my son, he had something familiar with his, but can't remember what the "cure" was. Will repost when I find out.
