Default transmission problems

Bought a 96 1500 for 200.00 The transmission will only move the truck only if you race the engine, the transmission fluid is full and doesnt look bad. i know there have been alot of problems with this year. every now and then it works fine but then goes but to slipping. Do you think i need a rebuild or could it be a sensor or something.

You most likely need a rebuild. A failed sensor will ususally put the trans in limp-in mode where you only have second and reverse gears.
