1994 Ford Bronco 351W Trans Question

So my truck stalled out on me today when i was pulling into work, Felt like the transmission didn't release the pressure and the torque converter just stalled out the engine. What would cause this? Is my trans going or is it a sensors? I did hit a couple big puddles on the way to work so i guess it could be a fluke but just wondering.

Truck is a 94 Ford Bronco 351W Auto Trans 4x4 with roughly 150k miles.

Thanks for any input
Russ

Lock-up torque convertor not unlocking? Had this problem with a cutlass years ago.

Its like it unlocks and locks randomly. Most of the time its fine while driving its just when i come to a stop it'll lock and stall my truck out or get the rpms really low.. Like under 500

Well i guess i can update this just in case someone else encounters the same problem. Ended up adding 4 quarts of trans fluid and it was still a quart low, so Im going to stop on the way home and get another 2(rode the bike in).
