I've seen these windstars strip the transmission pump shaft splines out of the torque converter. The trans will have to be removed to replace the torque converter. It could also be a bad trans pump. When you have the trans out, both are easy to check

    yes, it is an expensive fix if you pay to have it done. If you do it yourself, it will take a while.
