Smile 1995 F150 5.8 auto /overdrive tranny problem

Hello can someone please give me some advise on a problem i am having. I own a 95 f150 with 5.8 and auto w/overdrive tranny. I have noticed when leaving off the accelerator while in gear at all speeds it feels as there is "play" in the transmission. It bangs into gear. If you push on and off of the gas pedal it bangs. there is no slippage or anything. Is it possible some type of minor part can be the cause. there is only 70,000 miles on it.

Is the fluid level good? I think I would also check for any trouble codes as it could be a sensor problem.

Sounds like slack in the rear differential to me. Does it make any whining or roaring noises while you accelerate? Check the universal joints and put the truck in neutral and hit the parking brake. Of course do not have the truck running. Take your hands and turn the drive shaft back and forth to see if there is any play. There should be a little but not much. Maybe a half inch from the stopping point on one side to the stopping point on the other side. Just my $.02
