Default TRANSMISSION ISSUE!

Just all of a sudden my automatic stock trans in drive is now barley shifting second gear is short 3rd gear is very lagy and when 4th hit I max at 40 an it seems like it slips into neutral.

In overdrive it actually goes above 40 but 3rd is real laggy going in and also 2nd is short. Another odd thing is thay my throttle pedal is now feeling way lighter then b4 when pressing down. Id appreciate the help thanks!!

Check your TV kick down cable and make sure it is not broken, loose or disconnected , check at the throttle body and at the trans. Driving around with a broken or other wise misadjusted TV cable will destroy your trans in short order.

That is really low miles, but the plastic clips that hold these cables on get brittle with age and can crack/break very easily.

Check the operation of the TV cable when you find it. Make sure the cable operates freely. It's odd that you said you felt the gas pedal get easier. Meaning the TV cable may have corrosion in it. The cable should move freely in the protective sheath.
