Chugging at a quarter of a tank
I have been having some troubles with my truck i was told the lock out in my torque converter was going out, for a few months now whenever i get to a quarter of a tank or lower my truck starts to chug severly, i dont see how my torque converter would have anything to do with this, but ive already checked my fuel pump, replaced my fuel filter and checked my injectors

Sounds like the in-tank fuel pump is cavitating (sucking air) which leads me to believe the floating pickup arm is partially stuck and not traveling in the full range of motion it was designed for.

Next time it does it , loosen up your gas cap and see what it goes . Just a wild thought . Have seen something like this once before .

will i got it fixed yesterday, the fuel pump was sticking like you said, when i pulled it out it was stuck about 3/4 the way down, so i fixed the slide and the bolts holding it on, now theres no more chugging thanks for the help, this was pissing me off now i dont have to worry about it

Glad to hear it was a simple fix. Those are always the best!

Another happy customer. Cool! Glad it got fixed. I hate it when my rigs don't run right...
