torque converter, it is stuck in overdrive mode. was a factory recall. have you had it replaced? if not converter. It will be the computer module. Tends to become comprimised by moisture due to water from the firewall. Dealer will tell you there is a coil pack issue but do not believe it unless you have a random misfire code.

remove computer module. let it dry for a couple of days. seal with silcone. replace. It will still require replacement in future because of the corrosion you noticed on terminals. This will give you time to find a replacement at a more reasonable price than a dealer
