Hello, welcome. My name is***** will do my very best to assist you with your question. I apologize if you have been waiting long for a response.

From what you are describing this a common issue of the torque converter starting to fail for the gearbox.The splines inside of the converter become worn and cause the issue that you are having.
The torque converter will need to be replaced.

Thanks is that a new gearbox or just the converter, what sort of price am I looking at please.
Just the converter, the gearbox is normally unharmed.
The gearbox has to come out in order to replace the converter which will require about 5 hours of labor and the part runs about 400
