Your transmission is on its last legs. Soon it will be shedding its mortal coil. It must be a loyal trooper as it's giving you the last of its lifes breaths to get you home. Alas transmission! I knew you well dear friend. The transmissions dead. Long live the transmission. In other words. It's rebuild or replaced time.

couldn't b the torque converter, or solenoid?

May be a good investment to have fluid and filter changed. If the fluid is contaminated when drained, you have the answer, the tranny is failing and needs rebuilt. If not contaminated, it could be the fluid pump is week and fresh fluid may buy you some time, but not much.
