find out more about the transmission...paperwork, where the repair was done..etc. Find the build date of the truck as well, because i believe from aug 00 - april 01, the tranny came with a diode which, from what i've read on numerous forums, brake, leaving the truck/tranny, dead in the water.
See if that was the case, and if the trans shop "by passes" that system..etc.
if you dont have an AE, remove the oil cap, and place it on the filler tube, upside down, to see if it blows off, not vibrates off. If so, theres a big issue with the motor.
