Another solenoid?

I replaced the overdrive solenoid about a month ago and I'm wondering if I have another solenoid going out. Replaced fluids and filter as well

In drive at a complete stop, it feels like the torque converter will engage sometimes, enough to kill the engine, but not always. it seems to happen more within the first 30 minutes of driving and then goes away.

No other symptoms and no codes. the torque converter is not slipping or anything and there are no issues that I can tell once I get up to speed

I am thinking (hoping) it is the torque converter solenoid

No Code like when the overdrive solenoid went out. Is it possible that it's not throwing a code because it is intermittently getting stuck on and getting un-stuck?
