    Default Strange Transmission problem?

    so i was driving along a week ago in OD all was fine listenen to some tunes and i wasnt really in the gas i was more like cruisin barely puttin pressure on the pedal. all of a sudden the revs go up down up down up. i let off and hit gas again and it never happend again. so today was comin back home and cruisin just fine. and it revs up a lil kicks down a gear, kicks back up down then up i let up off the gas pushed in a lil and never came back. i noticed that a while back when chasing the ignition problem down one of the codes on the truck was a vehicle speed sensor. i unplugged battery and retested the next day and it was not there on the codes anymore. can a bad vss cause this. also what else causes problems like this. i know the tps is good but i believe the IAC is bad. any tips on what this lil gremlin could be. buy the way i did search the forums first. cause i always see 4l60 problem posts all the time n didnt see anything relevant to mine. lemme know and thanks.

    What are you working on? 2wd or 4wd?
    89 K Blazer 4" lift 35x12.5x15, warn hubs, cut out flares. Soon to have headers, posi carriers, gears.
    2000 K2500 Crew Cab 5.7 285/75R16's. 3" Body lift. Suspension parts being ordered.
    Lots more to do on both the trucks

    And a bunch of fast Buicks

    its a 4x4 it ended up being the vss. the other speed sensor was the sensor for a 4l80. so it was a part that was just paid for and returned. the vss had metal shavings attached to it so im thinkin it couldnt get a good reading.
