Thinking about taking it to Aramco to check trani
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Aamco

i would have a trans shop check it out..i prefer independent trans shops over aamco...but sounds like torq converter to me

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Could trani just need serviced? It has 155000 miles just bought it and not sure if it has been serviced
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
No trani dips tick so I can't tell if fluid is burnt or even if it is full

once they shudder its beyond service..they have no dipstick so you cant even check fluid level and condition easy...but very ;ikley its converter failure

Ok thanks
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
whole trani is bad or just converter?

sounds like the torq converter.. but a bad torq converter can contaminate and destroy a trans quickly
