Sticky Torque Converter Lock

Every time my TCL engages, it kinda sticks.

If I lift my foot off the gas, it will disengage.

If I press the gas, it requires a bunch of pedal and goes straight into 3rd gear.

Under no circumstances will it ever just unlock and go back into 4th -- always right to 3rd gear.

Sensor, solenoid, or mechanical/tranny? Opinions?

Get trans codes read...............your text really makes no sense and can be read to mean many things.
Fix the driver first, then fixing the car becomes so much easier.
