Problem I was initially having was when I cranked car it would idle but die when I put in gear. So I would hold brake and rev up and it would go. Then it quit pulling all together. replaced torque converter and now with a cold start it works fine but when heats up stops pulling

My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

If this new issue only occurred after the torque converter was installed there is a chance the replacement torque converter has an internal fault with it causing this issue here.I would check and make sure it was installed all the way properly and make sure all transmission components are connected properly as well.If this is o.k. this may be the torque converter itself or an internal mechanical fault with an internal transmission component that may have failed causing this here.The transmission would need inspected further to locate and repair any issues with it.
