Noise at idle

my truck makes a loud like rattleing noise at idle.when i'm crusing at like 35-40 in overdrive it goes away. with steady pressure on the gas pedal and if i tap the brake it comes out of overdrive and makes the noise again till it goes back into overdrive.
Is my torque convertor bad?
thanks
Joe

Yep, Most all early 99s do that, anytime the TC is unlocked it will rattle.

Well I guess I cant say it will hurt anything to leave it alone But If it bothers you at Idleing in park you can put a Lock up switch in and lock it, just dont forget to unlock it before you throw it in gear. Best thing i can suggest is put a new rebuilt TC in.
