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.

ever since ive had my 00 (almost a year and almost 30k miles) it has done that... if im going like 45 and hit the brake it goes back down to idle rpms and makes that "idling" sound

is it a problem or can i let it be?
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.
