Answers :

Inside the transmission are items called overrunning clutches or spragues. What they are is pretty much a bearing that only turns in one direction. I'm pretty sure there is one inside the converter as well. If a sprague goes bad, it will suddenly let go and slip, then re-engage. A good transmission shop can usually recognize this on a test drive and additionally can attach a "flight recorder" to the unit to eliminate the possibility of a diagnostic error.
If the problem is in the converter, and no metal or clutch material is found in the transmission itself, you may be able to just replace the converter. However, if there is debris in the pan, the sprague may not have been the first item to fail but has failed due to contamination of another internal part that has failed. Then, a rebuild is in order.
Of course, I'm assuming that the fluid is full and is not burned, and that you looked at that already. Converter sprague is inside the converter and cannot be replaced . Ones found inside the transmission are on the shaft inside and cannot be changed without taking the unit completely apart. Would make no sense to change it without changing the internal clutches as well.!!
