5.2 dakota trans

my dad has a 93 dodge dakota 5.2 v8 and it has i think a a500 or 42re trans i dont know. The transmission pulls for a couple of secs. thin stops you can turn the truck off back on and it pulls again for a couple of secs. I dont know anything about this trans but i was looking at parts could the Transmission Control Solenoid be doing this or do i have to rebuild this transmission.

I also have changed the trans fluid and filter now its black again i was thinking the clutchs could be burnt out.

Considering that the scrap value of that transmission is around $40-$45, that is a steal of a deal. At that price it is hard to go wrong, just out about $20 or so and labor if the transmisson turns out to have unknown problems.
