Hi there - it’s possible that your problem source is the torque converter lockup clutch NOT releasing as the truck slows down. This would lug the engine as though it’s in top gear until vibration, or an engine stop/start sequence causes it to release. I would recommend a transmission inspection by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, diagnose this problem, give you an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.
