After the car has warmed up, when I am driving the automatic transmission 1997 6cyl 4wd at around 45mph or higher, there is a loud clunking and lurching coming from the trans. It happens when I take my foot off the gas and coast, and then depress back the gas to re-engage the trans from coasting. the engine runs fine. I was hoping this could be something other than the trans, like a sensor or something. There is no slippage of the trans in any gear. 135,000 miles.

This doesn't seem like it would be a throttle position sensor (TPS) problem, in which case the vehicle will raise rpms while keeping the same throttle position. Lock out overdrive and see if the same lurching occurs while traveling at the speed you mentioned. If no slippage/lurching occurs I'd guess your torque converter may be on its way out. Others will chime in with their vast knowledge...
