Welcome to the forum!!!!

Im no trans expert by any means, but my guess would be either a binding torque converter or maybe a sun gear or something i the trans binding.....harald@BD should be on tomarrow and may be able to shed a little more light on it...

all depends on if its just the converter, or if the converter has contaminated the rest of the trans..

LOL, I know you are not being a smart aleck, I was going down a hiway one day and something came up and hit the ex brake cable and pulled on it hard and it took me two days to find what was wrong with it. Hope that all he needs to fix.
