Hi, My name is Jay

This problem can be caused by several possible problems. Here is a Ford technical bulletin on this problem to give to mechanic to perform and do all the checks to see what the cause is. since there is a bulletin then this is a common problem and all of these different causes can cause no engagement of torque converter.
