confussed on what sensor

i went to change trans fluid. the fluid was real dark almost like oil. i got the new fluid in. when i put it into reverse the rpms jump up as if i would hit the throttle but i am holding the brake. this bogs the engine down and stalls out. i put it in reverse and let it go to see how fast it would go. it got up to alittle over 6 mph. i did have a 94 gasser with similar problems. it was the tps. i cant find anything like this on my truck now. i dont have engine light on. while cold going down the road i did see that the rpms would flux. it never done that before. it also feels like it has a slight stall going down the road. would this be the tps, vss,idle sensor or pedal sensor.

O/D Light blinking?

Find a good scanner and scan it.

Does it do the same thing in forward gears?? Sounds like the tc might be locking on you, this would cause the stall out. It usually happens in forward gears at the same time though...

when i am coming up at a red light. the truck seems to try keep going. when i make the stop the rpm is runing around 700 - 1000. sometimes it would stall out. when i crank it up and put it in reverse it wants to haul butt. if i hit the brakes to hard it would stall out. then when i put it in drive i have to hit the pedal to go somewhere unlike the reverse. before i changed the fluid it did not do this at all. the only problem i had was after back out of the drive way it would not go into drive. the od light does not blink

your tc is locking. you'll be looking at tranny work sooner rather than later.

Tc lockup is provided by the tc lockup solenoid in the solenoid pack. I would scan for codes, check your harness really well, and or replace the solenoid pack...
