Will most likely need to have it rebuild if its bad. Mine was that way. Cost me 3k to have it redone. All sensors needed to be replaced and the case is all i used everything else was replaced or upgraded

Sounds like you need a rebuild for sure. Good excuse to beef it up while you got it out. I have a quad cab and converted it to manual. Night and day difference in driving experience.

Single disk torque converter, billet flexplate, transgo shift kit, upgraded GPS, etc. Contact Tony from JTSVP, he can give you the hook up.

I swapped in the T56 for this exact reason. The T56 just makes better use of the Viper power band IMO.

You should probably start with draining and refilling the transmission fluid before you get a rebuild. Change the fluid and then see how the truck drives.
