TRANSMISSION NOT SHIFTING....

2004 Ford Freestar • 128,000 miles

Automatic transmission in a ford freestar. First gear works fine then when time to shift into next gear experience loss of forward motion, does not shift into second gear and rpms spike. Have to come to a complete stop then first gear engages again. Is this a problem with the torque converter?

You have internal failure. It will have to come out and be overhauled.

No, the torque converter, if it failed, would not allow the car to move at all.
