Torque converter possibly.

Best Answer Mark helpful

I agree that it sounds like a torque converter issue. I would pull the pan and check for items in the screen, such as metallic particles, and if the screen is clogged. Flushing fluid, cleaning screen, etc. may fix your issue. More than likely though it is probably a mechanical issue such as the converter


Thank u all
