Default Help tranny problem

So my 97 1500 4x4 sport's tranny is acting up. It hesitates to take off and then between 2-3 it sounds like a grinding noise. What is my problem.?

Sorry I'm not the greatest mechanic, but I love these trucks and love to learn, so if someone can help me out and point me in the right direction, that would be great!

When you say that is hesitates to take off, what do you mean, does it slip, stutter, lurch, or takes a while to engage?

As for the grinding noise, as always check the fluid level first.

Is there a CEL?

Well I've been looking into it, I think the hesitation to take off, is the plenum plate, or whatever it's called. Ill put it in drive and press the pedal and it revs up real high but takes off real slow.

Fluid level OK? Been serviced (bands adjusted, filter changed)?
