Hello and welcome to Just Answer.
How many miles are on the car/transmission?
Are there any other transmission or engine codes stored?
110,000 miles total.
no engine code stored. however, transmission code 6 & 7 stored. for now, all codes cleared and I am driving without any light comes on.
Well, good news. There is a bulliten for this fault code. Every time I have seen this fault stored the seal described in this bulliten is damaged as noted. If the seal is not damaged, the converter will need to be replaced.
