I'm not saying that the torque converter is the problem. What you have to do now is get a proper diagnosis. DO you have any CEL light on?

If you have a Ammco Transmission shop they will be able to scan the computer and find out just what the problem is. It's quite possible that they can fix it without pulling the transmission.
