It makes me upset especially when someone is tail gating me and I cant go Zooom.
Sounds to me that your TCC is just a little slow in locking/unlocking. It (TCC) may also be prematurely engaging too at times. As for the "passing gear" problem, well that could be because the TCC will stay engaged & not let the trans down shift to a lower gear to allow you the extra burst of speed to pass.
