Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

The torque converter isn't something that can be repaired in the field but there are services that do repair them. Repairing a torque converter requires cutting it open, cleaning it and replacing any parts that have failed, welding it back together, testing and balancing. You may be able to find a transmission shop in your area that can send the converter off for repair but it's going to be much cheaper and quicker to replace it.
