Hi Im David, sounds like the torque converter clutch is the problem. check the tranny fluid make sure its bright red and doesnt smell burnt. and of course at the full mark.

I will have to check in the morning would that have to result in a rebuild or a new torque converter

depending on what the tcm is faulting, it may only be a solenoid or switch replacement
