Default 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

thanks

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 .
