TORQUE CONVERTER

2001 Honda Civic

Transmission problem
2001 Honda Civic 4 cyl Wheel Drive Type unknown Automatic 170000 miles

Its 170000KM's not miles.I am Canadian.
My check engine light came on a while ago and when I took it to get looked at it came up as the torque converter. I was told that I would need to replace the whole transmission. The light goes off and on. It will usually comes on when I'm on the highway then goes off after not being on the highway for about a tank of gas. It does rev up a lot when I'm speeding up and doesn't really switch gears smoothly, kinda jerks I guess you could say. Any suggestions?
I thought I was doing a good thing buying a honda. Guess not!
