Haro, I looked in my service manual CD and it said the usual cause of the symptoms your car is showing is a failing torque converter. any updates on this problem?

(BTW, this service manual CD covers ALL Gm vehicles 1990-2005.)

Thats seems to the common... Either the Torque converter of the 4th gear splines, which may also take out the converter, or the converter failing taking the rest of the trans with it

Sucks this is happening to you.

My initial thought is to drop the trans pan. If you see a mound of aluminum then the torque converter has let go and since aluminum is not magnetic is being pushed around the inside. If you see a lot of clutch material on the magnet then it may be a sign of too much line pressure in the trans which has burnt out the cluthces very quickly.

You should get a Tech-II on it and pull all the codes (not just SES lighting drivetrain codes but tranny codes, body codes etc...). There are a few real nasty trans codes that can set but do not light the SES lamp indicating a problem. If the trans has gears in it (3.69 im assuming) then you may have the dreaded 730 incorrect gear ratio code which can kill a trans very quickly because the PCM commands full pressure.

Good luck...
