Does anybody no of a trusted shop where I can take it to get it evaluated in the Chicagoland area?

The 5HP24 on 2000-2003 4.4/4.6 V8 are ZF-lifeguard5. Green label on the trans pan.

As far as rough shift from 2-1 on stop, that is the telltale sign of torque-convertor problem. I heard from ZF master tech that if you replace the TC now you can save the trans, if something break in TC it'll send sharpnel of metal and the trans need to be rebuilt as well. I'll say look for a good shop specializing in ZF trans, don't go to dealer for TC only replacement. GL.
